Educating our students about human rights violations: House Bill 1424

Tuesday, July 15, 2014 9:10 AM | Sonnya Nieves (Administrator)

House Bill 1424 (Act 70), sponsored by Rep. Paul Clymer (R-145), amends the Public School Code to provide for instruction on the Holocaust, genocide, and human rights violations. Act 70 allows each school entity to offer instruction in the Holocaust, genocide and human rights violations, and requires the State Board of Education (SBE) to conduct a study regarding the manner in which such instruction is offered. If most school districts do not voluntarily offer this instruction, the Act requires the State Board of Education eventually to force them to do it.
