College students — even Republicans — skeptical of crackdown on critical race theory

Data: The Generation Lab; Chart: Danielle Alberti/Axios

Nearly half of college Republicans support public schools teaching about institutional racism — and six in 10 don't think state legislatures should be able to stop it —according to a new Generation Lab/Axios poll.

Why it matters: The findings suggest that younger, educated Republicans think much differently about racism and academic freedom than GOP-led state legislatures seeking to censor the teaching of critical race theory.

By the numbers: 93% of college students overall — including 73% of college Republicans — say their high school's curriculum was flawed for focusing insufficiently, rather than too much, on the impact of racism on U.S. history.

  • 82% of college students overall say public schools should teach "that patterns of racism are ingrained in law and other institutions" — including 97% of Democrats, 74% of independents and 46% of Republicans.
  • 77%of college students overall say that state legislatures should not be able to limit how public schools or universities teach history.

Between the lines: 41% of respondents said they don't really understand the term "critical race theory."

  • 85% said they first heard about it within the last year and for 30%, this survey was their first time hearing of it.
  • Critical race theory holds that racism was ingrained into the country's foundation and has manifested throughout society's institutions.
  • In the early months of the Biden administration, the topic has bubbled up in the culture wars, and 26 states have introduced bills "or taken other steps that would restrict teaching critical race theory or limit how teachers can discuss racism and sexism," Education Week reports.

Methodology: This study was conducted June 24-28 from a representative sample of810 students nationwide from 2-year and 4-year schools.The margin of error is +/- 3.5 percentage points. The Generation Lab conducts polling using a demographically representative sample frame of college students at community colleges, technical colleges, trade schools and public and private four-year institutions.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
