Senior Thesis Title: Should Critical Race Theory be Taught in Schools in America?

Brief Description of Senior Thesis: Critical Race Theory is a hotly debated issue in today’s culture, and it is important to be aware of the issues surrounding it, namely in the education system of America. CRT has the potential to foster animosity between whites and race minorities that may not already be there and therefore should not be taught to students; and it cannot state that race minorities are incapable of being racist. The solution is a Christian approach.
