Adding critical race theory, others, does teach us to think
Regarding David Stevens’ editorial last Sunday: “Our public schools need to teach kids how to think, not what they should think:”
Critical Race Theory is simply a theory. Most of us who have attended college are aware we are taught theories in our discipline.
We agree with some and disregard others to create our own belief or theory.
Adding CRT to multiple other theories does teach us to think. It expands our horizon.
Do I believe it should be the only theory included? Of course not.
It is OK to hear others’ ideas. Maybe we will learn something new and incorporate a portion of any theory that makes sense in our own schema.
