    [Education Update] Inclusion of the Sikh Experience

    Press Release

    Sikhi Included in School Curricula and Medical Manual

    January 14, 2014 (New York, NY) – Over the past year, the Sikh Coalition's work to ensure that educational curricula and resources include information on Sikhs and the Sikh experience continued robustly.

    We are pleased to share three new educational resources that the Sikh Coalition reviewed and for which we submitted Sikh-related content:

    [ http://groundspark.org/our-films-and-campaigns/lets-get-real ]"Let's Get Real [ http://groundspark.org/our-films-and-campaigns/lets-get-real ]" by Groundspark is a 30- minute film and 130-page curriculum guide meant to combat school bullying. The curriculum discusses the bullying experiences of a Sikh student. It is created for students in grades 6 through 8, but can be adapted for high school students.

    [ http://saalt.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/InTheFaceOfXenophobia-Final-11.4.2013.pdf ]"In the Face of Xenophobia: Lessons to Address Bullying of South Asian American Youth [ http://saalt.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/InTheFaceOfXenophobia-Final-11.4.2013.pdf ]" released by South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT) in 2013, is a 90- page curriculum guide. The curriculum seeks to provide communities, individuals and educators with resources for addressing school bullying and bigotry directed at South Asian youth. Dalip Singh Saund, Bhagat Singh Thind, the Stockton Gurdwara, Balbir Singh Sodhi, the post-9/11 backlash, anti-Sikh bullying and the Oak Creek gurdwara shootings are all discussed in the curriculum. It may be downloaded free of charge here [ http://saalt.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/InTheFaceOfXenophobia-Final-11.4.2013.pdf ].

    [ http://www.tanenbaum.org/medical-manual ]The Medical Manual for Religio-Cultural Competence [ https://www.tanenbaum.org/medical-manual ] includes an entire chapter devoted to Sikhism and caring for Sikh patients. It is written by the Tanenbaum Center for Interreligious Understanding in consultation with experts in the fields of religion and medicine. It offers communication guidelines, checklists to help manage patients' responses and tools to help organize and integrate them into treatment plans.

    We are pleased to share these resources with the community, educators and healthcare providers. Your support [ https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/1385198 ] has allowed us to become a valued resource for professionals seeking to create content on Sikhs.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
