Texas education board votes to call long-sought Texas course “Ethnic Studies: Mexican American Studies”

The State Board of Education indicated in a preliminary vote on Wednesday that it would change the name of Texas’ new high school Mexican-American history course to “Ethnic Studies: Mexican American Studies.”

The unanimous vote came a day after activists urged the board in public testimony to scrap the title members chose for the course in April, “Ethnic Studies: An Overview of Americans of Mexican Descent,” saying the longer title was an assault on their ethnic identity.

The decision will not become official until Friday, when the board takes a final vote.
