Should public schools teach about racism in America? Many schools are incorporating Critical Race Theory in their curriculum, and parents are complaining that it’s causing kids to be more separated than united. However, Toccara, a mother of a 10-year-old and former substitute teacher, says she has to teach her child about the effects of racism because it’s not taught in her school district.
“Schools are still not giving students an accurate history about the country that they live in,” Toccara claims. “Critical race theory is not about blaming; it’s about understanding the whole history.”

Hear more from Toccara in the video above, including what she says her son was incorrectly taught in school. And, Dr. Phil and Dr. Luke Wood, Professor of Education at San Diego State University who teaches critical race theory and believes it can help children, weigh in.
Are kids too young to learn about critical race theory? Should it be forced, or should it be an elective? On Tuesday’s episode of Dr. Phil, “Critical Race Theory,” Dr. Phil and his guests debate. Check local listings to see where you can watch.
