Bill promotes diverse cultural dress at commencement - School Innovations & Achievements Cabinet Report

Tuesday, February 14, 2017

(Calif.) In yet another expression of California independence from national norms, high school seniors will be given formal freedom of expression in their dress during graduation ceremonies, under a new bill pending in the Assembly.

Author of AB 233–Assemblyman Todd Gloria, D-San Diego–said his bill is just small step toward exposing students to the type of diversity they will see later in life, while at the same time allowing their peers to express pride in their cultural ties.
