C100 Webinar: "AAPI Curriculum: Why is it important and how to expand access?"

Please join Committee of 100 (C100) at their AAPI Curriculum Virtual Event.

America’s public schools have rarely taught Asian American history and culture. For nearly 200 years, Chinese Americans have contributed to American history —and in many cases against overwhelming racism and xenophobia. Public schools are critical in shaping citizens. In most states, schools do not require students to learn about the contributions of Americans of Asian descent, but Asian American history is American history. If they don’t learn this as children, how can students become citizens who will understand the challenges and struggles of all Americans?

Committee of 100 recently unveiled a state-by-state analysis of the prevalence of existing policy and potential legislation requiring the teaching of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) history and contributions in K-12 social studies curriculum. On July 27 (Wednesday) at 5pm PT (8pm ET), Committee of 100 will convene a webinar where  they will present an overview of the analysis and discuss the following questions with expert academics and policymakers: 

  • Why is adding AAPI curriculum requirements important? 
  • What states have requirements, which don’t, and how do they differ? 
  • What lessons can we learn from successes and failures in getting legislations through? 
  • How can we expand access to AAPI curriculum to all fifty states? 
  • Has the rise in anti-Asian hate led to more of an understanding of Asian Americans and their contributions to the building of America?  
  • How do we get involved?

They will also discuss opportunities for further study and take questions from participants.
