On Dec. 2, Gov. Charlie Baker signed into law “An Act Concerning Genocide Education.” This legislation requires Massachusetts public schools to educate middle and/or high school students on the history of genocide. This legislation is a positive step forward for education reform in Massachusetts. However, the language leaves a lot of room for interpretation.

Join Hadassah Northeast for “Learning From Lessons of Hate: Opportunity for Holocaust/Genocide Education in Our Schools Now.” We will hear from Holocaust survivor and Jewish educator Henny Lewin, who will share her personal story, as well as Hopkinton High School educator Steven Spiegel, who will share his success engaging and educating students about the Holocaust and other genocides based on a curriculum developed by Facing History and Ourselves.

We will provide a roadmap on effective ways you can use your voice to ensure the public schools in your community are educating the next generation in a comprehensive and impactful way so that we truly never forget. Don’t let this be a missed opportunity for the students in your community. Your voice needs to be heard!
