Oregon is Now the Only State to Have Required Ethnic Studies Curriculum for K-12 Students

A coalition of seven local groups making up the Ethnic Studies Coalition—have made crucial gains this week, ensuring K-12 ethnic-studies curriculum is required for students, not only the whitest large city in the country, but for students in the entire state.

House Bill 2845, sponsored by Rep. Diego Hernandez (D- East Portland) and signed this week by Gov. Kate Brown, directs the Oregon Department of Education to convene advisory groups to develop ethnic-studies standards into existing statewide social-studies standards.
