California ethnic studies curriculum that asks students to chant and pray to Aztec gods is being challenged in court by a group of parents, who say the material violates both the U.S. and the state Constitutions.
At issue is an 800-plus page Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, which was adopted by the state in March and is being used by the state’s public schools.
