Forty years after the fight for Ethnic Studies at SFSU, we are continuing the fight for funding to pilot a 9th grade Ethnic Studies course in the SFUSD during the 2010-11 school year.
This Tuesday, we will be mobilizing in front of the SFUSD building to proudly present our proposal and resolution for Ethnic Studies in our SFUSD high schools to the School Board members.
In this current budget mess, we need as many allies, students, parents, educators, and community based organizations in support of the course to attend and show the School Board members wewantandneedthis course for a better and more hopeful education and future for ourselves, loved ones, and communities! We need to pack the room with supporters!
