From time to time issues arise that relate to history-social science education where a response from the field is needed. Sometimes it is an action by the State School Board, the California Department of Education, or the U.S. Department of Education. Other times it is a piece of legislation that would effect social studies, funding, curriculum, assessment, instructional materials, time, etc. In these cases we share information with leadership and seek input from educators across the state. Keep up with changes across the state, and nationally, by reading our updates and providing your comments and insight on the issues.
