Join us for an important and timely exploration of Ethnic Studies. With legislation proposed for the addition of an Ethnic Studies Curriculum to be added to what is currently addressed in classrooms around the state, this program will focus on addressing questions regarding what is Ethnic Studies, what are the pros and cons and impact on Jewish students and other minorities, does the current curricula in schools cover this area of study? and if so, what are the pros and cons of adding a new unit?
Panelists include: Robert Leikind, Regional Director of American Jewish Committee New England; Elina Kaplan, President of Alliance for Constructive Ethnic Studies; Steven Stotsky, Director of CAMERA'S Education Institute and Lori Lowenthal Marcus J.D., Legal Director of The Deborah Project.
The program is free and everyone is welcome.
