underlying perspectives, research methods and pedagogy of CRT in EDUCATION Race and racism are entrenched and enduring in US society; a central and not a marginal factor in defining and explaining individual experiences of the law 1. CENTRALITY AND INTERSECTIONALITY OF RACE AND RACISM Calls for examination of how race has come to be socially constructed and how the systemic nature of racism serves to oppress people of color while protecting white privilege. CONSIDER THIS WEEK'S READINGS:
EXAMPLES OF THEME 1 IN MEXICAN AMERICAN SEGREGATION LITIGATION? 2. CHALLENGE TO DOMINANT IDEOLOGY Heterodoxy: challenging orthodoxy, particularly towards views of meritocracy, objectivity, color and gender blindness, equal opportunity THEME 2: IN WHAT WAYS DID SEGREGATION LITIGATION REVEAL THE POWER, PRIVILEGE, AND SELF-INTEREST OF THE DOMINANT WHITE POWERS OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICTS? Firm duty to social justice and the elimination of racism; schools are political institutions where education is a vehicle to end forms of subordination, such as class, gender, and/or sexual orientation discrimination. 3. COMMITMENT TO SOCIAL JUSTICE THEME 3: HOW DID LITIGATION SHOW A COMMITMENT TO SOCIAL JUSTICE FOR MEXICAN AMERICANS? 4. CENTRALITY OF EXPERIENTIAL KNOWLEDGE Importance of experiential knowledge of people of color

COUNTERSTORYTELLING THEME 4: WHAT ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF A COMMITMENT TO EXPERIENTIAL KNOWLEDGE IN SOME OF THE LITIGATION WE READ ABOUT? 5. INTERDISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVE CRT challenges the ahistorical and unidisciplinary preoccupation of most analyses; one can best understand race and racism in education by incorporating interdisciplinary perspectives THEME 5: WHAT ARE SOME SPECIFIC EXAMPLES OF INTERDISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVES SEEN IN SEGREGATION LITIGATION? DEVELOPMENT OF OTHER IMPORTANT FORMS OF CRITICAL RACE THEORY (NOT SUBSETS) LET'S NOT FORGET... - CRITICAL RACE FEMINISM (CRF)
- LATINO CRITICAL RACE STUDIES (LatCrit)
- ASIAN AMERICAN CRITICAL RACE STUDIES (AsianCrit)
- AMERICAN INDIAN CRITICAL RACE STUDIES (TribalCrit)
