The Revised 2022 Power Ranking Criteria as of 1/1/2022.
The Society of College Medicine, in the spirit of intellectual advancement, competitiveness and fairness, has determined that schools who utilize CRT (Critical Race Theory) in their curriculum (or overall academic environment), will lose points from our School Power Ranking system. After much research, we have determined that this “Theory” represents a notion of hate and racism and will not be recognized as a “positive” academic credential.
A quick summary of Critical Race Theory; the New Intolerance in American Education:
Critical Race Theory (CRT) makes race the prism through which its proponents analyze all aspects of American life—and do so with a degree of persistence that has helped CRT impact all of American life. CRT underpins identity politics, an ongoing effort to reimagine the United States as a nation riven by groups, each with specific claims on victimization. In entertainment, as well as the education and workforce sectors of society, CRT is well-established, driving decision-making according to skin color—not individual value and talent. As Critical Theory ideas become more familiar to the viewing public in everyday life, CRT’s intolerance becomes “normalized,” along with the idea of systemic racism for Americans, weakening public and private bonds that create trust and allow for civic engagement.
1. Critical Race Theory makes race the prism through which its proponents analyze all aspects of American life.
2. CRT underpins identity politics, which reimagines the U.S. as a nation riven by groups, each with specific claims on victimization.
3. CRT’s intolerance can be found in schools, the workplace, and the entertainment sector, “normalizing” belief in systemic racism for the average American.
