Description

The bill mandates funding instruction in public schools of history
and civil government of the United States and Colorado, including but not
limited to the history, culture, and social contributions of American
Indians, Latinos, African Americans, Asian Americans, and the
intersectionality of significant social and cultural features within these
communities.
Current law requires school districts to convene community
forums to discuss the content standards in history and civil government
at least once every 10 years. The bill requires the forums to be held at
least every 6 years.
The history, culture, social contributions, and civil government in
education commission is established to make recommendations to the
state board of education when the state board performs its scheduled
6-year review of education standards so that those standards and
programs accurately reflect the history, culture, social contributions, and
civil government of the United States and Colorado, including the
contributions and influence of American Indians, Latinos, African
Americans, Asian Americans, and the intersectionality of significant
social and cultural features within these communities.
