Memo: NSEA Supports Assembly Bill 371

NSEA supports AB371 to define and include discrimination based on race in existing law related to bullying.
Support AB371
Published: April 8, 2021

Educators understand that a respectful learning environment is necessary for students to best be prepared for learning. School communities should embrace students, so they feel safe and welcome. Any incident of racism at school clearly is counter to creating a safe and respectful learning environment and needs to be taken very seriously. Reports of racially motivated incidents should be validated and seriously investigated.

AB371 requires reports of racially motivated incidents to be investigated with the same protocols as incidents of bullying. With heightened public dialogue about systemic racism and protests under the banner of Black Lives Matter and Stop Asian Hate movements, now is the time for Nevada to do more to address the serious problem of racism in schools.
