How do we define critical race theory and when is it appropriate to discuss in classrooms?

Live call-in discussion: This hour, we discuss critical race theory, what it is and what it isn't and how it's igniting debate in school districts across the state and country.

Broadcast live on Wednesday, Sept. 22, 2021 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.

Disclosure: One of our guests is from the Essex Westford School District, and Brendan Kinney, VPR's senior vice president of development and marketing, is clerk for that school board.
