Educational Equity; Article 11. The Bill Brady Human Relations Pilot Project
The Legislature finds and declares all of the following:
(a) California's schoolage population is changing dramatically, becoming increasingly diverse both racially and ethnically. These changing patterns of our social fabric have presented society with serious opportunities and concerns in the area of human relations.
(b) School districts are an effective vehicle for teaching children human relations and prejudice reduction.
(c) Through the use of a pilot project, human relations materials that foster cooperation and group work can increase academic achievement and self-esteem, and promote positive interaction among pupils from different racial, religious, and ethnic groups.
(d) It is the intent of the Legislature that the development of human relations materials and staff training modules provide models for the implementation of California's most recent History/Social Studies Framework.
