TELL CALIFORNIA OFFICIALS: Keep Bias and Hate Out of Our Schools


Photo by Andre M, Wikipedia


We need your help to keep hate and bias out of California public schools, and we have made it EASY for you.


Just fill out the form below to email California education officials, urging them to revise the state's ethnic studies curriculum and reject pressure from anti-Israel extremists.


BACKGROUND INFORMATION

In September, we asked you to mobilize and speak out to keep hate and bias out of California's Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum (ESMC). You can read our detailed analysis of the previous draft here.


Thanks to all of our efforts, the California Department of Education (CDE) has released a new draft with significant improvements. However, further changes are needed (see our analysis and recommendations here), and extremists are now pressuring the CDE to put anti-Israel bias back into the curriculum and remove honest education about antisemitism.


DON'T LET THE HATERS WIN.


California residents have until January 21, 2021 to provide feedback about the curriculum to the CDE.


Please submit respectful comments using the email form below, and SHARE THIS ALERT with your friends in California.


DO'S AND DON'TS

DO NOT attack the officials working on the ESMC or any other community covered in the curriculum.

DO:

  • Keep your comments respectful and focused on the issues outlined in the sample message below and detailed analysis here.

  • Emphasize the value of inclusion and critical thinking, and how anti-Israel and antisemitic bias have no place in the classroom.

  • Personalize. For example, if you are a parent, grandparent, educator, or student, introduce yourself as such and share how the current draft of the curriculum will personally impact you and your family.
