PROVIDENCE, R.I—The Rhode Island State House Legislation has passed the General Assembly instructing the Department of Education to help local schools teach students about genocide as a critical component of civic education.


The legislation, sponsored by Sen. Joshua Miller (D-Dist. 28, Cranston, Warwick) and Rep. Anastasia P. Williams (D-Dist. 9, Providence), directs the state Department of Education to post on its website materials to help schools teach students about genocides including the Holocaust and those in Armenia, Cambodia, Iraq, Rwanda and Darfur.
