Assembly Bill 1921 passed with a 30-1 vote, according to the Associated Press. It was introduced by Assemblyman Dan Holden (D-Pasadena). Sen. Holly Mitchell (D-Los Angeles) says the bill would require the Instructional Quality Commission (which facilitates much of California’s Common Core framework) to consider teaching students about Obama’s election within the context of past voter discrimination, the AP notes.
Sen. Joel Anderson (R-Alpine) was the only senator who voted to strike down the bill. He said, “We’ve never done this for any previous president,” the AP notes.
Mitchell reportedly placed great emphasis on the importance of learning about “overcoming our nation’s past to elect our first black president.”
So, we discontinue Civics, Social Studies, and American History in junior high and high schools in favor of this? GMAFB!!!! Link to said stupidity….
