New ethnic-studies mandate: Turn students into ‘agents of change’

By Around the Web

(THE COLLEGE FIX) — The Minneapolis Board of Education hopes the district’s new ethnic studies requirement will turn students into “agents of change.”

In early November, the board passed a requirement that students “must earn a passing grade in an ethnic studies course” starting with the class of 2025.

The courses are designed to “explore identity” and “prioritize the history and culture of historically marginalized groups,” reports the Star Tribune.
