Ethnic Studies Now Coalition
In LAUSD, we are at a critical moment. The district will present its one semester Ethnic Studies course on February 10th. Ethnic Studies Now, in collaboration with the Council of Ethnic Studies Implementational Integrity, would like to ensure that the course LAUSD submits for A-G approval, is one that is representative of the field, legacy, and language of Ethnic Studies, in honor of the resolution the LAUSD School Board passed on November 18th, 2014. We have several fundamental tenets of ES we have been working with in collaboration with leading ES educators and scholars, and we would like to open up this process to you, all ESN Coalition members, throughout the state of California and beyond.
