“Boston Public Schools’ History and Social Studies Department will create a comprehensive scope and sequence plan for Ethnic Studies electives centered around Boston-area ethnic communities, Latinx, African and Asian/Asian-American studies. Students enrolled in these courses will benefit from the greater cultural insight that comes from these classes and will be able to understand how the intersectionality of culture, race, family, environment and identity affect their lives. Processing these ideas is key for several groups like English Learners and LGBTQI+ students of color in our diverse communities. The work will be done in collaboration with teachers and selected students.”
