On Friday, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a bill – AB 101- into law that makes it mandatory for high school students to pass “ethnic studies” indoctrination courses as a part of their graduation requirements. The new law makes California the first state in the US to make learning marxist CRT ideology compulsory for teenage students to graduate.
In addition to every public school in the state, charter schools will also have to follow the new guidelines – Only Private schools are exempt from the new law – Which is very conveinent for the Governor, seeing that his 4 children all attend lavish private schools.
Not to mention all of his wealthy eliteist friends and their children.
Rules for thee but not for me.
This bill would add the completion of a one-semester course in ethnic studies, meeting specified requirements, to the graduation requirements commencing with pupils graduating in the 2029–30 school year, including for pupils enrolled in a charter school. The bill would expressly authorize local educational agencies, including charter schools, to require a full-year course in ethnic studies at their discretion.
The bill would require local educational agencies, including charter schools, to offer an ethnic studies course commencing with the 2025–26 school year, as specified.
Newsome rejected a previous version of the bill last year, but the timing must have been better now. It’s probably just a coincidence that it passed in the wake of his questionable escape in the *rigged* recall election.
The course cirriculum for these ethnic studies classes is – no surprise – a cesspool of Marxist CRT garbage. The material will be based on California’s currently in-use “model cirriculum in ethnic studies” and/or any “existing ethnic studies course” (including college-approved courses). Educators will also be able to come up with their own cirriculums as long as the content is approved by their local woke school board.
Some of the anti-American lesson plans that have already been approved for high schoolers include: “#BlackLivesMatter and Social Change,” “Afrofuturism: Reimagining Black Futures and Science Fiction,” “US Undocumented Immigrants from Mexico and Beyond,” and “This is Indian Land: The Purpose, Politics, and Practice of Land Acknowledgment,” among countless others.
The bill would authorize a pupil to satisfy the ethnic studies course requirement by completing either (A) a course based on the model curriculum in ethnic studies developed by the commission, (B) an existing ethnic studies course, (C) an ethnic studies course taught as part of a course that has been approved as meeting the A–G requirements of the University of California and the California State University, or (D) a locally developed ethnic studies course approved by the governing board of the school district or the governing body of the charter school.
The bill would prohibit a course that does not use ethnic studies content as the primary content through which the subject is taught from being used to satisfy the ethnic studies course requirement.
The new law provides so much flexibility to the radical local school boards that the liberal LA Times Editorial Board opposed its passage – Even they could see the problem with handing over that kind of unchecked power to Activist educators who view children as pawns for their political goals.
Just take a look at this boot-licking marxist scumbag that was busted by an undercover journalist from Project Veritas. These people are psychopaths.
Thanks to Newsom, Teachers like that will be running the show and California high schoolers will officially no longer be students – just activists in training.
Homeschooling is looking better and better each day.
