Breakthrough on California History/Social Science Textbooks

by Duane Campbell
The Mexican American Digital History Project ( sponsors of this blog) and a broad group of allies have been working for over a year to add Chicano history to the California History/Social Science Framework, the document that determines what goes into textbooks in California.

 We are pleased to inform you that the Quality Instructional Materials Commission of the California State Board of Education have posted their proposed revised framework and it includes most of what we wanted. 

You need to read the specific appendices for grades 9-12.
Hearings on the draft are being held today and Friday.   See the agenda link above for details.
