The weird and confusing term critical race theory, appears as something all dressed up with no useful place to go. I much prefer rearranging the letters to equate with a popular local acronym, CTR (Choose the Right), as as a guide in teaching in schools about this very complex issues of race, ethnic and cultural clash so prevalent today.

By all means, do discuss every aspect of the subject in your class as honestly as possible, which is a very difficult task under the best of circumstances — and leave the labeling behind.
