No, while our history is tragic, as it comes to K-12 education, social theory won't help them. Understanding of what has happened on a factual basis can help individuals come to their own conclusions and offer a good discourse between different groups.

They should be taught about different cultures so students have the opportunity to feel like they belong in the classroom

Yes, but also encourage the teens to form their own opinions and to do accurate research

No, children should be taught about different races and cultures and that although many barriers have been put in place specifically to empower whites and keep black people disadvantaged, diversity is strength.

No, teaching a group of people they are literally, inherently evil will only serve to make them give up and just be evil instead.

@Austin-CrewsSocialistfrom Texas  disagreed…2wks

Critical Race Theory doesn't teach that any group of people is "evil". Please try to understand what terms actually mean before giving your opinion on them.

We and our children should all be made aware of our past and what needs to change for the future, but not in a way that makes one feel guilty for what happened in a time they weren’t alive for

@9PN487JLibertarian from North Carolina answered…3mos

I think they should be taught all aspects of history and not from a single view point.

@9PGFCX5Women’s Equality from California answered…3mos

No, critical race theory could instill bias in demographics who are still in their critical period

@9MZLHK4Veteran from New Hampshire answered…3mos

No, there is only one race. The human race. This is what should be taught. All other races do not exist.

@9Q3J3QCDemocrat  from Missouri commented…3mos

The Human race is a species, like everything else it can be divided. And if taught this they could realize how incredibly one sided this world is. You sound incredibly ignorant right now. And a 9th grader just told you how society works.

@9Q4FJY6Constitution from Mississippi answered…3mos

No y’all just keep making up stuff and continue to try your best to make it seem like everything is racist when it literally is not.

NO, Kids should be taught to love one another no matter what color they are.

@9Q3RZ2RWorking Family from Virginia answered…3mos

Teaching them being racist isn't the way I agree to but not to were you keeping throwing it up at their face every single day. That would turn them racist.

@9Q37Y8DRepublican from Connecticut answered…3mos

No, conflict theory in general is heavily flawed in terms of historiography. Conflict theorists, of which Critical Race Theory is a part of, set out not to show events as they were, but to prove a point. Conflict theorists like those who wrote the 1619 Project downplay examples of unity or outright ignore them at best and create utter lies at worst. Take for example the now deleted claim from the 1619 Project that among the chief causes of the American revolution was the rising sentiment of abolition in Great Britain. This claim was found to be so fraudulent that the New York Times had to

Children should be taught we are all equal and that noone should be at a disadvantage based on the color of their skin.

@9QHLYXVLibertarian from Ohio answered…2mos

No, kids should learn that race does not determine who someone is or how they behave.

As a jap/mex combo, I want my kids to not have pity of their pasts, so no.

@9N2W3WZWomen’s Equality from Missouri answered…3mos

Not all laws are inherently racist, but those that are need to be acknowledged, taught, and changed

@9PC8GY9Peace and Freedom from Oregon answered…3mos

Yes. Covered in High School and as presented as a theory / part of a greater curriculum focused on discrimination as it occurs globally across cultures. Everyone has the capacity to be racist / discriminatory regardless of your race, orientation, or beliefs. The topic should be aimed at addressing the underlying biases that created the current situation (so it can be fixed) and not at exasperating the situation by reinforcing "us" and "them" dynamics in our society. We are 1 people of diverse backgrounds, what caused what we are experiencing today and how can we fix it without perpetuating the problem?

@9NVC84YAmerican Solidarity from Georgia answered…3mos

Yes, but both proponents and opponents of critical race theory should have a chance to explain their concerns about it.

@9NGZ8NXTranshumanist from Missouri answered…3mos

Yes, but it should only be taught as a theory and students should be required to have their own debate about it in class.

@9N8K743Women’s Equality from Ohio answered…3mos

Yes, but maybe hold off until they are old enough to understand what it means so we are not stressing out young children who may take it the wrong way.

@9N2F8Y8Working Family from Illinois answered…3mos

Within reason- honest, accurate information must be taught to children who are teenagers

@9MZSTNNPeace and Freedom from Arkansas answered…3mos

i believe that the future generations should be racially colorblind but they should still understand the different races' cultures

@9MTVRGTWomen’s Equality from California answered…3mos

Yes, but it should be taught in middle school and high school. Kindergarten and elementary school children are too young.

@9MTVR8NDemocrat from California answered…3mos

Yes, but don't educate children on such matters when they are that young. Perhaps start learning about it in 4th grade to middle school.
