The main focus of CriticalRace.org is Critical Race Theory and its applications in higher education, as this is where the ideology was first developed and where many individuals are trained. Our database does not yet cover primary or secondary schools.

We recognize that Critical Race Training in primary and secondary education is a growing issue and one that’s significantly more difficult to track.

We’ve included some resources concerning Critical Race Training in primary schools beneath:
