About the Event
City Club of Boise Virtual Conversation: Critical Race Theory in Context: Politics in American Schools
Join us for a chance to learn more about the controversy surrounding Critical Race Theory (CRT). This once esoteric academic legal theory is now making headlines, affecting funding for public schools and universities, shaping the composition of local school boards and curricula, and impacting state and local elections.
This panel will explore important questions about the emerging debate over CRT: what CRT is, what parents are concerned about, what worries critics most, and how and why CRT became a political hot topic.
Dr. Kevin Bruyneel, Professor of Politics at Babson College
Dr. Adam Laats, Professor of Teaching, Learning, and Educational Leadership at Binghamton University-SUNY
Emma Pettit, senior reporter at the The Chronicle of Higher Education
This Virtual Conversation will be moderated by Shaakirrah Sanders, Law Professor at the University of Idaho, on Tuesday, December 7, 2021 from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. MT.
