Summary: Ethnic studies is a multidisciplinary field which includes economics, history, literature, sociology and political science. It offers a comparative study of various ethnic groups. California is one of the most diverse states in the nation, and this curriculum is an essential part of building understanding and empathy. AB331 would require ethnic studies be part of the curriculum as a graduation requirement at public and charter high schools. This bill did not receive a floor vote in the Senate.
