LOUISVILLE, Ky. - There's a new curriculum that Jefferson County Schools (JCPS) is rolling out, together with the Frazier History Museum.
The website called What is a Vote Worth, will be used by teachers for lessons in Social Studies in classrooms for grades K-12. It centers on the women's suffrage movement, celebrating soon to be 100 years since women got the vote, to teach civic engagement and even register students to vote.
"We have a push in racial equity, in cultural equity, in inclusivity in our curriculum so that students aren't only accessing information that was written by a winner or was written by you know, a dead white person," Kentucky Council for the Social Studies President Maddie Shepard says.
The new website will be rolled out in schools officially on Constitution Day.
