Using existing resources, NEA will encourage state affiliates to promote teaching of issues related to bias, prejudice, and bigotry, including bullying, through genocide, Holocaust, and human rights curricula in kindergarten through 12th grade in all public schools.

Rationale/Background

There is a wide array of civil and human rights violations occurring around the world.  We should empower educators to engage students in informed discussions around these issues to encourage students to treat all individuals with respect.
