        Request for Cosponsor(s)

Dear Colleague,

We urge you to cosponsor the Palestinian Authority Educational Curriculum Transparency Act (H.R. 6034), bipartisan legislation we introduced to require the U.S. Secretary of State to regularly review and report to Congress on the content of educational materials
used by the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). This legislation follows the release of the Palestinian Authority’s reformed curriculums for grades one through eleven.

Textbooks and other educational materials used in the West Bank and Gaza should conform with internationally-recognized standards of peace and tolerance, rather than promote violence or prolong conflict. Requiring the State Department to submit annual reviews
of the Palestinian curriculum will also help shed light on any troubling anti-Semitic and anti-Israel content which does not belong in educational materials supported by U.S. taxpayers. We would appreciate your consideration of this important legislation.
For more information, or to cosponsor, please contact Michael Rogenmoser at michael.rogenmoser@mail.house.gov or Daniel Marrow at daniel.marrow@mail.house.gov.

Sincerely,

 

David Young

Member of Congress
