Parsons, Eileen R. Carlton; Rhodes, Billye; Brown, Corliss
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v6 n4 p951-960 Dec 2011
In this forum, we summarize CRT's origins, tenets common to most CRT writings, and CRT's evolution. We discuss Yerrick's article "Negotiating White Science" with respect to certain CRT premises. Specifically, we use the CRT tenet of racism as emphasized in first- and second-generation CRT and CRT elements liberal racial ideology and voices of color to critically examine Yerrick's propositions.
