We’re just sure the curriculum will reflect what a colossal failure he’s been.
A bill authored by a Pasadena lawmaker that encourages schools to teach about the historical significance of Barack Obama becoming the nation’s first African-American president is now California law.
KNX 1070’s Bob Brill reports Gov. Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 1912, whose author, Assemblymember Chris Holden, says will be the first step toward acknowledging President Obama’s legacy for generations to come.
AB 1912 asks the State Board of Education and the Instructional Quality Commission advisory panel to include the “significance of the United States electing its first African American President” in the 2008 election in the state’s history and social science standards for grades seven to twelve.
The bill – which passed the Assembly in April a 71-0 vote and no debate or discussion – calls the election a “historic step in the effort towards equality in the United States” and that previous elections in the nation involved intimidation and physical violence that prevented millions of African-Americans from voting, according to the Associated Press.
It also commends Obama for his work as a community organizer who registered voters after he graduated from Harvard Law School.
“Just 145 years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, and only a generation removed from the civil rights struggles, President Obama’s election represented the moment when all things seemed possible,” Holden said in a statement.
