SALEM, Ore. -- A new bill would require Oregon schools to teach students about the Holocaust and genocide.
SB664 would take effect July 1, 2020. It is currently being debated in the Senate Committee.
The bill wants to "enable students to evaluate the morality of the Holocaust, genocide and similar acts of mass violence and to reflect on the causes of related historical events."
It also hopes to "develop students’ respect for cultural diversity and help students gain insight into the importance of the protection of international human rights for all people."
