Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred H.B. No. 11, H.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO EDUCATION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
(1) The Board of Education to adopt culturally relevant, historically and scientifically accurate, and nondiscriminatory performance standards;
(2) A standards-based curriculum and educational materials that are historically and scientifically accurate and nondiscriminatory with regard to race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, color, religion, ancestry, or disability; and
(3) School complexes to develop, to the greatest extent possible, a standards-based curriculum that includes content on the historical injustice, cultural subjugation, and discrimination faced by the indigenous people of Hawaii and other historically underrepresented populations as applicable to units of study.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Finance that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 11, H.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
