Vietnamese Model Curriculum

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​BOAT.jpg


Vietnamese American Experiences Model Curriculum
The Vietnamese American Experiences Model Curriculum will include the fall of Saigon in 1975; a discussion of the Vietnamese boat people and members of the Republic of Vietnam Armed Forces; the reasons behind the exodus; hardships faced by the Vietnamese people attempting to flee who were apprehended by the communist government; conditions that led to the resettlement of Vietnamese people in the United States. 

According to Assembly Bill​ 167 [Webpage] Chapter 252, Statutes of 2021 amended California Education Code sections 33540.2 for the development and maintenance of model curricula relating to the Vietnamese American refugee experience. The California Department of Education shall, in collaboration with, and subject to the approval of, the executive director of the state board, enter into contracts with county offices of education for the purposes of developing a model curriculum. See below for information about engagement sessions on these projects. The final content of the curriculum will include the histories, cultures, and heritages of those in Vietnamese/American communities. Work on these projects will begin in 2022 and conclude by September of 2025.
