Our committee seeks to eliminate discriminatory practices in public education, including investigating the public school system and keeping informed of school conditions to correct abuses where found.
We also focus on improving opportunities for teacher development within our school communities and promoting the integration of multicultural and multilingual curriculum into public schools. In addition to teacher certification, we monitor the effects of standardized and high stakes testing practices and study local educational conditions and materials that might be racially derogatory, affecting minority groups.
