FAIR Education Act

On July 14, 2011, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law Senate Bill 48 or the FAIR (Fair, Accurate, Inclusive, and Respectful) Education Act which requires schools to provide general instruction and textbooks that include information on the contributions of “Native Americans, African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, European Americans, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans, persons with disabilities, and other ethnic and cultural groups.” This law took effect on January 1, 2012 and concerns all instruction in history social science, including the course of study in grades one through twelve.

With the passage of The FAIR Education Act, an urgent need now exists for an accessible, comprehensive, technology-driven and research-based course that meets this new California standard and 21st Century global teaching goals. CLICK HERE for Frequently Asked Questions.
