Ethnic Studies in K-12
October 27, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
The registration for Education or Indoctrination: Ethnic Studies in K-12 has closed. But never fear, you can watch it live on Free Black Thought (@FreeBlckThought) or the Jewish Institute for Liberal Values (@jilvorg) Twitter pages or here on the Institute for Liberal Values website or YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4M6p_Rn2z8
The education system is now at the forefront of contentious national debates, as educators and parents clash over how to appropriately teach our children about racism, oppression, and equality. What curriculum helps students see themselves in education and understand overlooked parts of history? What curriculum indoctrinates students, forcing them to accept a series of narrow assumptions? This is not an issue of right- or left-wing politics, it’s a non-partisan concern for those who believe in an honest treatment of history that does not force feed any single political agenda. Join the Institute for Liberal Values (ILV), Alliance for Constructive Ethnic Studies (ACES), the Jewish Institute for Liberal Values (JILV) and Free Black Thought (FBT), as they discuss the differences between education and indoctrination in our classrooms.
