Equity is the Only Acceptable Goal ~ Paul Farmer

Let's see... What's new? 

In 2021, the State passed a law which required schools to incorporate lessons about diversity and inclusion into K-12 curricula. An early draft of the bill limited these lessons to PE/Health classes in the upper grades, but the final bill encompassed every grade and every subject.

And, it's possible you may have never seen your district's Comprehensive Equity Plan. Every district is supposed to have one and the 2019-2022 plans should be completed by June. My hope is that the 2022-2025 plans are more comprehensive and rigorous (and faithfully executed...). 

And don't forget that back in 2019, the State passed a law which stated that schools should incorporate into their curricula materials about members of the LGBTQ+ community as well as materials about people with disabilities. This should have taken effect in September 2020. If you're playing catch-up on this one, here's a quick list of resources:
