Community College Students in California Must Now Fulfill ‘Ethnic Studies’ Requirement to Graduate
“As the largest and most diverse system of higher education in the country, we have an opportunity to break down barriers to equity”
Social justice is an industry in higher education, and business is booming.

No diploma for CA students not versed in ‘ethnic studies’
California’s community college students are now required to fulfill an “ethnic studies” requirement in order to graduate.
On July 13, California’s Community Colleges Board of Governors announced that students seeking an associate degree must complete a three-unit semester or four-unit quarter class in ethnic studies. A task force will work to determine “the timing for implementation of the ethnic studies requirement as well as the definition of courses that will satisfy the requirement.”
“As the largest and most diverse system of higher education in the country, we have an opportunity to break down barriers to equity,” Board of Governors President Pamela Haynes said in the press release. “By building a faculty and staff that look like the students and communities we serve and by putting diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and anti-racism at the heart of our work, we can help create a system that truly works for all our students.”
California Community Colleges — the largest system of higher education in the country — instructs over 2.1 million students at 116 schools.
Across the United States, ethnic studies and anti-racism trainings have incorporated the doctrines of critical race theory — a left-wing academic framework positing that White people in America are an oppressor group, while racial minorities are an oppressed group.
California’s new K-12 “Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum,” for example, stresses the importance of intersectionality — which “recognizes that people have different overlapping identities, for example, a transgender Latina or a Jewish African American” — in defining ethnic studies.

Indoctrination supported by the California Taxpayers Association
So is this in place of an English requirement, or math, or what? How will this make the curriculum anything but worse for the many CC kids whose basic skills are very marginal and they need all the help they can get if they hope to transfer and succeed at 4 year institutions?
This is the Dems’ way of indoctrinating all college students to make sure the state stays pure blue.
Who graduates from a community college anyway? I thought most students take 1-2 years’ worth of classes and then transfer to 4-year institutions.
That’s the point. Students could start in CC and do an end run around Big U BS and then proceed directly into courses required for their major: and for less money too. This change to CC makes sure the indoctrination racket still gets their cut
