    These studies give students the knowledge who they are and what the future can hold for them. It is a foundation of belonging to society and builds personal character, a positive motive for a brighter future for the student and our country.

    Many in my extended family are from Coachella, including a few teachers and several students, and I am aware of the pressing need of curriculum that reflects the great majority of Mexican and Chicano students of the Coachella Valley. Please be responsible education leaders and implement Raza and Ethnic Studies, a more culturally relevant and responsive curriculum for our students.
