About this Event
For members of the Mount Holyoke Club Hartford.
In 2019, the Legislature passed Public Act 19-12, making Connecticut the first state in the nation to require every public high school to offer an elective in Black and Latino history. The curriculum was completed in July 2021, was offered in a limited number of high schools in 2021-22, and will be offered in every Connecticut school district in 2022-23. MHC alum Nitza Diaz, a consultant at the Connecticut State Education Resource Center and the Connecticut Parent Information and Resource Center, led the development of the Puerto Rican/Latino portion of the curriculum. She will present an overview of both parts of the course and answer questions about its development and implementation. Nitza was recently honored with the Outstanding Parent Advocate Award of the Connecticut Association of Latino Administrators and Superintendents.
