BS and the Brain – Who Decides What We Teach?

Join our education experts to explore the facts and the issues around education content and decisions. Our panelists will speak to federal, state, and local “rules”, parental notification & participation, sensitive topics (sex, race, gender, pronouns, etc.), ethnic studies, civics, climate change, and more.

Invited speakers include J. Manuel Herrera of the East San Jose Union Board of Education, Jennifer DiBrienza of the Palo Alto School Board and Dr. Mary Ann Dewan, Santa Clara County Board of Education Director.

Our goal is to provide information about how curriculum is determined, taught, who controls the process and potential improvements. Our panelists will have a conversation around:
  • What curriculum topics are people concerned about – and why?
  • As a democratic society, how should we approach these topics?
  • Who are the final arbiters of content being taught?
  • What role should parents have in determining content?
