Current law requires each school board to provide an instructional program
designed to give pupils knowledge of state, national, and world history. This bill
directs school boards to include in that instructional program the role of the Hmong
in fighting for the United States in the Vietnam War, the persecution of the Hmong
by the Laotian government after the Vietnam War, and the reasons for the
emigration of many Hmong to the United States.
