Listen & Download

This webinar will explore issues raised by the raft of state and federal initiatives on Critical Race Theory and related topics.  Issues will include the scope of state authority over the content of education, with special attention to differences between K-12 and public universities.  Varying features of state-level CRT bills will be discussed, as well as the characterization of their content from supporters and detractors. 

On the state level, state education standards, "book banning", and legislation pertaining to curriculum transparency, “action civics,” and “diversity statements” will be discussed.  Moves to control educational content at the federal level through grantmaking will also be covered.
