Critical Race Theory An Examination of its Past, Present, and Future Implications
Hartlep, Nicholas Daniel
Online Submission
This paper endeavors to evaluate the current body of research conducted on Critical Race Theory (CRT). It fixates on historically marginalized populations within the urban school setting and the larger society. This evaluation is carried out through a literature research synthesis. First, the origins of CRT are articulated. The history of CRT in the United States is discussed. The article lists the five tenets of CRT, providing brief overviews and examples of the tenets. Focus is drawn upon studies done on CRT: Universalistic Paradigms vs. Relativistic Paradigms. The penultimate section of this paper asks, knowing what we know, where do we go from here? Propositions for future research are made. Lastly, implications for further research are cited. It is the author's intent to elaborate and provide insights into an abundantly-written-about topic, CRT, in such a way that both "Crits" and laypeople will have their paradigms and conceptions challenged and expanded. (Contains 2 notes.)
