Author: Devon John Mathis

Summary
AB 1821, as amended, Ramos. Pupil instruction: course of study: social sciences: treatment of Native Americans. Existing law requires the adopted course of study for grades 1 to 6, inclusive, and the adopted course of study for grades 7 to 12, inclusive, to include certain areas of study, including, among others, English, mathematics, social sciences, science, and visual and performing arts, as specified.Existing law requires the Instructional Quality Commission, when the history-social science curriculum framework is next revised, on or after January 1, 2024, to consider providing for inclusion, in that curriculum framework, related evaluation criteria, and accompanying instructional materials, of instruction, among other things, the historical, social, economic, and political contributions of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders in the United States.This bill, with respect to the adopted course of study for grades 1 to 6, inclusive, for social sciences, would additionally require instruction that provides a foundation for understanding the Spanish colonization of California and the Gold Rush Era, including the treatment and perspectives of Native Americans during those periods. The bill, with respect to the adopted course of study for grades 7 to 12, inclusive, for social sciences, would require, to the extent instruction is provided on the Spanish colonization of California or the Gold Rush Era, instruction that provides a foundation for understanding the treatment and perspectives of Native Americans during those periods. The bill would require the commission, when the State Board of Education next revises the history-social science curriculum framework or adopts new instructional materials, on or after January 1, 2025, to consider including content on the treatment and perspectives of Native Americans during those periods in that curriculum framework or evaluation criteria for instructional materials. To the extent that this bill would create new duties for local educational agencies or local officials, it would constitute a state-mandated local program.The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.
