Starting This Fall, New Textbooks & Guidance to Help California K-12 Teachers Cover LGBT Issues and Historical Figures in the Classroom

 


When the new academic year begins for California public schools, instructional materials will be available for the first time that ensure every K-12 classroom has access to accurate and unbiased depictions of the sexual orientation and gender identity of historical figures.

The state’s FAIR Education Act — FAIR stands for Fair, Accurate, Inclusive, and Respectful — requires history and social studies curriculum to include references to contributions by people with disabilities and members of the LGBT community.
