The goal of Curriculum Watch is to ensure standards of education that are historically accurate and ethnically and culturally unbiased. Chaired by Dr. Sandra Alfonsi, Curriculum Watch takes on the serious business of challenging publishers and educational institutions when their textbooks and materials indicate a bias against Jews or other minorities, or when the history of the United States, Israel, or the world is clearly misstated or “sanitized” in favor of one group over another.
When a textbook contains maps of the Middle East but Israel is missing, when history books include World War II but never mention the Holocaust, Curriculum Watch begins the sometimes arduous process of dealing with school systems, publishing houses, and communities to remedy the situation.Dr. Alfonsi works with a distinguished Advisory Board of 18 professors, historians and attorneys.
