Implementing the FAIR Education Act

Oct 1, 2014

  For many students in California today, says Don Romesburg, a professor of Women and Gender Studies at SSU, a wider teaching of inclusion may simply reflect their world back to them, even at a young age.

For high school students, such an expanded curriculum helps explain the development of the society in which they are coming of age.
