There is a new battleground in culture wars: the classroom. Republican legislatures target critical race theory, including Ohio lawmakers. But what is Critical Race Theory and what is its presence in public elementary, secondary, and secondary schools across the state? In this episode of Dear Ohio, Spectrum News anchor Curtis Jackson examines what CRT is (and isn’t) and how the debate surrounding it could threaten local control of schools and important discussions about race and inequality.
In this series of reports, Curtis Jackson examines how the past informs current politics in Ohio and political debate in the state and beyond.
