It has been over a decade since scholars in education began to apply the CRT framework from legal studies to the complex issues of race and racism in education. Yet, the picture of what it would mean to "do" CRT in educational research remains unclear. This edited volume brings together several scholars from both law and education to provide some clarity on the current status and future directions of Critical Race Theory, answering key questions regarding the "what' and "how" of the application of CRT to education. The contributors to the book return to the roots of CRT, interweaving the legal scholarship from which CRT originated with the new growth of CRT in education. The authors succeed at both pushing the boundaries of race-related theory in education, while at the same time remaining true to the original tenets of CRT in the law. As such, the book can serve as a primer for emerging scholars interested CRT and a reader for established CRT scholars in education and the social sciences.
