Critical race theory and its critics : implications for research and teaching / by López, Francesca A.,1974-author.; Sleeter, Christine E.,1948-author.;
Includes bibliographical references (pages 116-134) and index.Critical race theory as the new villain -- How did we get here? -- Research on the impact of teaching about race -- Messaging : how think tanks and the media exploit emotions toward agendas -- Where do we go from here?"What and who is behind the attacks on Critical Race Theory? Why are attacks happening now, and what can be done about them? In Critical Race Theory and its Critics, Francesca López and Christine Sleeter provide readers with an overview of today's controversy, contextualizing the immediate precursors to the attacks on critical race theory and other equity-focused approaches in schools, as well as the organized reaction by conservative think tanks to undermine equity efforts. Contrary to claims by critics of critical race theory, research supports addressing racism in the classroom as part of a broader effort to ensure that all children thrive. Today's attacks, while new in form, are not new in substance and purpose, as an historical account of parallel efforts aimed at undermining equity shows. Given the recursive nature of attacks and the extent to which they have eroded policies aimed at eradicating systemic inequities, Critical Race Theory and its Critics concludes with evidence-based recommendations on messaging, organizing, and sharing of research"--
