CSBA School Board Members will be  hosting a forum on Ethnic Studies and Inclusive History.

New History Social Science Standards have been issued, and districts are in various stages of the curriculum adoption process.  New curriculum should have more focus on diversity and be inclusive of all histories including API histories.  How can we as board members be involved in the curriculum adoption process and ensure that inclusive histories are incorporated in our classrooms?
