Teachers at Oregon public schools will now be required to teach students about the Holocaust and other genocides after a bill was passed on Monday reports the Algemeiner.

“Learning about genocide teaches students the ramifications that come with prejudice of any kind in society,” Sarnowski told lawmakers earlier this year.

Effective next year, schools must “prepare students to confront the immorality of the Holocaust, genocide, and other acts of mass violence and to reflect on the causes of related historical events,” in addition to teaching about cultural diversity and stressing the need to protect human rights worldwide.
