SmallBites Lagniappe: Critical Race Theory-The Conversation, with Sheldon Eakins (Pt. 2)

#SmallBites

What happens when 2 educators get news of a post describing 21 JEDI (justice, equity, diversity and inclusion) terms as Critical Race Theory terms being used to indoctrinate students in K-12 classrooms? In part 2 of this podcast, Dr. Sheldon Eakins of the Leading Equity Center helps explain the tenuous, almost mythical connection between culturally responsive teaching (CRT) and critical race theory (CRT). Spoiler alert: Only the initialism is the same. Once again (for the people in the back), critical race theory is: "a framework that offers researchers, practitioners, and policy-makers a race-conscious approach to understanding educational inequality and structural racism to find solutions that lead to greater justice."--The Oxford Research Encyclopedia "a theoretical and interpretive mode that examines the appearance of race and racism across dominant cultural modes of expression. In adopting this approach, CRT scholars attempt to understand how victims of systemic racism are affected by cultural perceptions of race and how they are able to represent themselves to counter prejudice"--Purdue Owl “not a diversity and inclusion 'training' but a practice of interrogating the role of race and racism in society that emerged in the legal academy and spread to other fields of scholarship."--The American Bar Association Further, "in the field of education, CRT is a helpful tool for analyzing policy issues such as school funding, segregation, language policies, discipline policies, and testing and accountability policies. It is also helpful for critically examining the larger issues of epistemology and knowledge production, which are reflected in curriculum and pedagogy." --The Oxford Research Encyclopedia If you are reading or hearing that CRT is anything other than a way to reflect on whose voices are being heard and whose are lacking in representation; so that you can amplify the voices of all students, you are being misled. About the guest: Sheldon L. Eakins, Ph.D. is the founder of the Leading Equity Center and host of the Leading Equity Podcast. With over 11 years in education, he has served as a teacher, principal, and Director of Special Education. Dr. Eakins has a passion for helping educators accomplish equitable practices in their schools. He has earned a B.S. degree in Social Science Education, an M.S. degree in Educational Leadership, and a Ph.D. in K-12 Education.

28. Being Willing to Put Our Jobs On the Line with Dr. Sheldon Eakins

Time for Teachership

Right now, the need for equity training at schools is getting higher, not lower. It’s apparent that teachers still haven’t built the capacity or habit of doing the work on their own. According to today's guest, Dr. Eakins, the goal is for school members to get all the tools they need to take charge of their own social justice efforts. Tune in to hear us talk about what equity training really involves and why teachers shouldn't assume they don't need it. Want more? Follow me on Instagram: @lindsaybethlyons Liked this episode?
