Passage prompted by NAACP, IUPUI partnership
As of July 1, all Indiana high schools will be required to offer ethnic and racial studies as an elective course at least once every school year under Senate Enrolled Act 337. Act 337, a bill authored by Sen. Greg Taylor, D-Indianapolis, was signed into law last week by Gov. Eric Holcomb during a private signing ceremony.
Chrystal Ratcliffe, NAACP’s Indianapolis chapter president, said the initial focus was on Black history, but the group expanded its approach.
“It started with the idea of requiring teaching of African-American history in Indiana schools and became a multi-cultural education requirement with the support of IUPUI professors and a diverse coalition,” said Ratcliffe. “We are grateful to Senator Taylor for his persistence and leadership on this issue.”Garry Holland, the chapter’s interim education chair, Ratcliffe and others in the organization worked with African-American, Native American, Latino and Asian cultural education experts to successfully push for passage of the law, the result of four years of advocacy in the Indiana General Assembly 0605201710:29
