"The strength of Critical Race Theory Matters is how the authors describe the salient summary points of Critical Race Theory with a clear and cohesive voice. Ideal for undergraduate courses on CRT or critical studies of race, Critical Race Theory Matters fulfills its purpose as an introductory text for students unfamiliar with CRT."-Laurence Parker, Professor, Department of Educational Leadership & Policy, University of Utah

Over the past decade, Critical Race Theory (CRT) scholars in education have produced a significant body of work theorizing the impact of race and racism in education. Critical Race Theory Matters provides a comprehensive and accessible overview of this influential movement, shining its keen light on specific issues within education. Through clear and accessible language, the authors synthesize scholarship in the field, highlight major themes and assumptions, and examine strategies of resistance and practices for challenging the existing inequalities in education. By linking theory to everyday practices in today's classroom, students will understand how CRT is relevant to a host of timely topics, from macro-policies such as bilingual education and affirmative action to micro-policies such as classroom management and curriculum. Moving beyond identifying problems into the realm of problem solving, Critical Race Theory Matters is a call to action to put into praxis a radical new vision of education in support of equality and social justice.

"The strength of Critical Race Theory Matters is how the authors describe the salient summary points of Critical Race Theory with a clear and cohesive voice. Ideal for undergraduate courses on CRT or critical studies of race, Critical Race Theory Matters fulfills its purpose as an introductory text for students unfamiliar with CRT."
