TRENTON, N.J.— New Jersey school districts must incorporate instruction on diversity and inclusion under a bill Gov. Phil Murphy signed Monday.
The legislation goes into effect immediately, but calls for beginning in the 2021-2022 school year.
The bill aims to promote and highlight diversity, including economic, gender, sexual orientation and race.
The state’s education commissioner will give the state’s 600-plus districts sample activities and resources aimed at promoting diversity and inclusion.
