K-12 Asian American and Pacific Islander and Ethnic Studies in the United States

Committee of 100 unveiled a state-by-state analysis of the prevalence of existing policy and potential legislation requiring the teaching of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) history and contributions in K-12 social studies curriculum. Committee of 100 researchers analyzed the laws, regulations, bills, and publicly available curriculum standards of the 50 states and the District of Columbia to determine which states have existing K-12 AAPI or ethnic studies curriculum requirements or legislative action that would enact such requirements. Committee of 100 cross-referenced state legislature websites, state statutes, keyword Google searches, and LegiScan to assess the existence and status of legislation and statutes, as well as state department of education websites and publicly available curriculum standards issued by state regulators and boards of education to determine the prevalence of AAPI and ethnic studies academic standards. The research took place from July 27, 2021, to March 1, 2022.
