Education consultant uses critical race theory to train school teachers, staff according to documents

The documents show multiple trainings given to school staff of the Tredyffrin/Easttown School District [TESD], including ones titled “Using Critical Race Theory to Transform Leadership and District,” and “Introduction to the Theory of Transformation and Systematic Racial Equity Framework.”

The documents show the school district participated in the Pacific Educational Group’s “Courageous Conversations,” which the website describes as “a process to understand and discuss race explicitly.”  

The presentations explained “Critical Race Theory (CRT) in Public K-12 Education,” stating, “By the late 1970’s, Gloria Ladson-Billings and other prominent researchers, applied the principles of [Critical Legal Theory] to the field of education, suggesting that the process of schooling is neither race neutral nor “color-blind.” The culmination of their work provided five tenets of critical race theory to better understand the critical intersection of race and schooling.”
