Teach Us History - All Of it.
By Representative Tram Nguyen
We are so grateful to Representative Tram Nguyen and Representative Steven Ultrino for championing the CARE Bill H.542/S.288, An Act to Promote Racially Inclusive Curriculum for K-12 Schools.
Check out Representative Nguyen's article on the need for more inclusive education, which was selected and published by the Harvard Kennedy School Review. It illustrates the crucial and urgent impact that H.542/H.288 would have on building a better curriculum for all K-12 students and help uplift students' lived experiences. The bill calls for the teaching about the significant contributions of all diverse backgrounds. Read her published article HERE!
