Specialized education for minority students to start at Albuquerque schools

APS Ethnic Studies Courses

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – APS is answering the call for more specialized education for minority students.

The new curriculum which will include Mexican American, Chicano, and Native American studies will be offered for the 2017-2018 school year. Teachers and community members gathered last week to brainstorm about the best ways to incorporate it into their classroom.

Right now students at Albuquerque High School, Del Norte High School, and Highland High School can take courses focused on minority experiences but the curriculum will now be expanded to all APS high schools.

The program will be available for juniors and seniors.
