A school district’s racial and ethnic diversity does not reliably predict its affinity for critical race theory (CRT) in the curriculum and diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) policies, according to research by a group that promotes race-blind policies.The Californians for Equal Rights Foundation (CFER) studied 42 districts in San Diego County, home to some of the fiercest battles over school racial issues in recent years, and published rankings based on their implementation or prohibition of CRT and DEI. It also studied one in San Luis Obispo County.
Executive Director Wenyuan Wu shared with Just the News underrepresented minority (URM) figures for each district, which aren’t currently part of the interactive chart. The category includes self-identified Hispanics, blacks, Hawaiians and Native Americans, but not Asians.
