With recent changes in Texas legislation banning the teaching of critical race theory (CRT) in the K-12 public school system, teachers are now limited on how they teach on the topic of race and the history of racism in the United States. This panel will explain critical race theory, the impact of recent legislation, and the role of Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) within the context of the anti-CRT political movement.

Panelists:

  • Dr. Enrique Alemán – Lillian Radford Endowed Professor in Education, Trinity University, Antonio, TX
  • Dr. Tanya Gaxiola Serrano - Assistant Professor, Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, the University of Texas at San Antonio
