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.
