A00472 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A472C
 
SPONSOR: Rozic (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act in relation to authorizing the commissioner of education to conduct a survey regarding instruction on the Holocaust within the state   PURPOSE: To require the commissioner of education to conduct a survey and submit a report to the governor and legislature regarding compliance with the requirement to provide a instruction on the holocaust.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section I authorizes the commissioner of education to conduct a survey to determine which school districts are offering instruction on the holocaust in compliance with section 801 of the education law. The survey will include questions on how the district is meeting the learn- ing standards for instruction requirements on the Holocaust pursuant to section eight hundred one of the education law and will also include an attestation from each public school district superintendent that indi- cates instruction related to the Holocaust is provided at all appropri- ate grade levels. Sections II details what shall be included in the report and provides that commissioner shall provide a report on the findings of such survey by no later than the first of January one year after this act has become law. Section III details how non-complaint schools will address the issue and create a corrective action plan. Section IV sets forth the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: It is not lost on us that the horrors of the Holocaust are not forgotten with this year's International Holocaust Remembrance Day marking only 77 years since the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. Every moment we have to honor the innocent lives lost at the hands of state-sponsored perse- cution and murder is a step forward in condemning hate and violence rooted in intolerance and oppression. Not only is it our societal responsibility to commemorate the lives lost, we must continue making conscious efforts to educate future generations on how important human rights declarations are in the prevention of genocide. Recent news stories have featured a controversial high school assignment in which students were instructed to provide their "Nazi point of view" in support of the Holocaust. This troubling assignment comes amidst a rise of anti-Semitic vandalism and threats of violence against our communities. With the ADL reporting drastic increases in antisemitic incidents year after year and recent studies showing an embarrassing lack of Holocaust knowledge among New Yorkers. Passage of this legislation would ensure that all of our children are accurately taught about this moment in history so that we can truly live up to our pledge of never again.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2020: A2182 (Rozic) - Education 2019: A2182 (Rozic) - Education 2018: A8527 (Rozic) - Education   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
