A small school district in California is planning to spend $40 million teaching ‘ethnic studies’ to high school students – with consultants training teachers on the new curriculum at a cost of $1,500 an hour.
Hayward Unified School District in June became the first in the state to officially adopt the new curriculum, promising in a press release cited by an op ed in The Wall Street Journal that it ‘will be informed by and include Critical Race Theory.’
On June 25, the Bay Area district announced that they had approved the teaching of ethnic studies throughout all grade levels, from preschool to 12th grade, and it will become a graduation requirement by the 2022-23 school year.
The school board described ethnic studies as ‘the interdisciplinary study of race and ethnicity, as understood through the perspectives of major underrepresented racial groups in the United States.’
