In Louisiana, students are required to graduate with 24 credits which none include African-American studies. It is however an elective but isn’t required. Young black children and all other races are not being taught about African American history and it is only hurting them in the long run. The children are our future and we must use the education system in their advantage. Hopefully this petition gets enough signatures so that “African-American History/Studies” can be a required course across the country starting with InspireNOLA Charter Schools. Again we are asking that this is a REQUIREMENT starting with the class of 2021. Sign the petition if you agree.
