DURHAM, N.C. — A nonprofit is gaining attention for its grant program that supports educators seeking to apply anti-racism efforts in their classrooms.
A hot issue among North Carolina voters right now is critical race theory, or CRT. The topic is being discussed on a daily basis, as states like Florida just banned more than 50 math books saying some contained CRT in them.
CRT is defined as examining the intersectionality of race, society and law. And while some people want it taught in schools, others don’t.?
Durham nonprofit we are, which stands for Working to Extend Antiracist Education, provides anti-racism training for children, families and educators. Its executive director, Ronda Taylor Bullock is fighting to make CRT accessible.?
“We use a three-pronged approach to dismantle racism in education and beyond by offering summer camps for kids and rising first- through fifth-graders, professional development for educators and workshops for parents and families,” Bullock said.
