In the article, “AAPI History Required in Illinois Schools” I learned that a governor signed a bill that requires schools in Ohio, Wisconsin, New York, and Illinois to teach Asian American history. The law will begin in January 2022. Ohio was the second state to incorporate Asian history in the school curriculum. While New York and Wisconsin come with stricter guidelines like creating a course of study with assistance. On the other hand, Illinois was the first to pass the law.How long should Asian American history continue?
I think it may be important to keep learning about history in schools. But since we have been learning just about different topics I think the study of Asian American history shouldn’t take so much time lecturing. This will be easier for schools and students.
