Memo: NSEA Supports Assembly Bill 19

AB19 revises the academic subjects that constitute social studies; exempting standards of content and performance for courses of study in public schools from certain requirements governing the adoption of regulations; and providing other matters properly relating thereto.
Support AB19
Published: 02/16/2021

NSEA supports AB19 and, in particular, supports the clarification of multicultural education as a part of the social studies requirement for all Nevada students.

Research affirms what educators intuitively know—multicultural education, or the study of the social, political, economic, and historical perspectives of our nation’s diverse racial and ethnic groups, helps foster cross-cultural understanding among students of color and white students. Multicultural education aids students in valuing their own cultural identity while appreciating the differences around them. Students who participate in multicultural education are more academically engaged, develop a stronger sense of self-efficacy and personal empowerment, perform better academically and graduate at higher rates.
