The fight for Ethnic Studies in California schools continues, including a 2016 law to develop a model ethnic studies curriculum for California high schools, the LA Unified School District (LAUSD) K-12 ethnic studies resolution in 2014, and the LAUSD ethnic studies high school graduation requirement in 2020.
