I want American history taught. Unless I’m in that book, you’re not in it either. History is not a procession of illustrious people. It’s about what happens to a people. Millions of anonymous people is what history is about.
– James Baldwin
Not long ago I wrote a little post about the California education initiative to actually ‘teach’ LGBTQ history.
Today the California Senate passed on this plan.
SACRAMENTO — A bill that would require California public schools to fairly and accurately portray the historic contributions of LGBT people in social science instruction passed the Senate in a 23-14 vote.
It is now headed to the California House.
