El Rancho Verde Unified School District will stop requiring its high-school students to take geography and instead require them to take a class on diversity and inclusion.
ERUSD president Aurora Villon said the class is necessary because minority students “need to feel validated.”
“When you negate their culture, they feel less than other students,” she said in an e-mail to Whittier Daily News.
98 percent of the district’s students are Hispanic.
God knows we wouldn’t want these Hispanic kids to learn about the geography of their “own” country. Better to teach them how they have a right to set up Mexico in the United States, and that borders are meaningless.
