“California Ethnic Studies Curriculum” Sr. Fellow Williamson Evers appears on the Lars Larson radio show
Posted: Mon. August 31, 2020, 4:57pm PT

Sr. Fellow Williamson Evers' recent Op-Ed in The Wall Street Journal says the state’s new curriculum prefers victimization to minority achievement, and Marxism to liberal values. The proposed requirements will teach high school students about four ethnicities without focusing on some European or Jewish history. Instead of identity politics, students should be taught about entrepreneurship and resiliency instead of being trapped by your circumstances.

“California Ethnic Studies Curriculum” Sr. Fellow Williamson Evers appears on KPRL radio
Posted: Wed. August 5, 2020, 9:55am PT

California's K-12 public schools are planning to introduce a new curriculum for teaching social justice and ethnic studies. Sr. Fellow Williamson Evers says the curriculum is full of lessons about victimization and racial identity, instead of stressing the culture assets of minorities and their capacity to achieve. Students should be taught about historical figures such as George Washington Carver and minority entrepreneurs, says Evers. The narrow focus of ethnic studies doesn't include positive examples from all minority groups and favors certain minority groups.
