    As a long-time resident of Riverside County I urge the Coachella USD to adapt an ethnic studies course for high school students.

    I am a 1968 CVHS graduate and a course in Ethnic Studies would have helped me immensely in preparation for College especially a history regarding my ancestors, their country, their language. It would have provided a foundation for interest in foreign affairs, economic development, social justice, community development, and critical thinking. During our High School years at CVHS (my brother & 3 sisters) we were NOT motivated to learn because of the curriculum. IF there had been a course in Ethnic Studies, it would have definitely inspired pride in our heritage, knowledge about our heritage, and a history unknown to us regarding our ancestors. This course requirement has made in difference at other High Schools showing a low student drop rate and an increasingly enrollment at Colleges. My family and friends encourage you to support Ethnic Studies at CVHS!!!
