The Vermont House of Representatives has passed a bill to try to diversify the school curriculum in the Green Mountain State.
Advocates of that bill have said there are often gaps in the information presented in history textbooks. Lawmakers hope this measure helps fill those gaps.
It would require an ethnic studies curriculum in Vermont elementary and high schools. That curriculum would educate students about people from different ethnic or social backgrounds and their contributions to society.
The bill is now on its way to the state Senate.
