Dear School Board Representative, We urge you to support the implementation of Ethnic Studies as a graduation requirement at the Coachella Valley Unified School District. As elected officials, you can help maintain our district’s vision by ensuring that our students are prepared to graduate, and attend college, as critical thinkers, with an understanding of various cultural and social issues.

    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.
