Texas Holocaust, Genocide, and Antisemitism Advisory Commission Public Statement on Best Practices in Holocaust Instruction
The Texas Holocaust, Genocide, and Antisemitism Advisory Commission was created by Texas Legislature to "... to ensure that resources were available to students, educators, and the general public regarding the Holocaust and other genocides."
SB 1828 assigns the THGAAC the task of approving resources that can be used in the classroom. The following resources are approved. SB 1828 allows each Texas school district to decide which THGAAC-approved materials are age-appropriate for their students. The THGAAC includes age recommendations for each title.
Educators should screen in advance anything shown to students to ensure appropriateness.
