Ethnic Studies Course
In collaboration with local Black youth organization,
Justice Vanguard, and educators and administrators,
we successfully lobbied the Mountain View-Los Altos High School Board to implement mandatory ethnic studies. The course will be a year-long, non-tracked (no Honors or AP equivalent) freshman requirement starting in 2022.
Thank you to everyone who spoke out at board meetings and supported the cause.
Our work continues in advocating for students to be involved in the curriculum and class-development process, as well as working to implement the course in other districts.
To learn more about the specifics of our course or to get involved at your own district, view the PDF that we presented at the 2021 High Schoolers for Democrats of America Summit.
