Albert Mohler: California Curriculum Proposes Rewrite of History

The state of California is now considering an ethnic studies curriculum for the public schools—and we should all take notice.

For decades, California has had an outsize influence on such things as curriculum and textbooks because if a textbook is adopted in California, it’s likely also to be adopted elsewhere.

I knew this proposed curriculum would be bad. But it’s even worse than I imagined.

Capitalism is presented as racist.

The English language is re-tooled. The word “history,” for example, is abandoned because it contains the oppressive word “his”—which is too rigid, representing a “gender binarist” approach to telling history.

Academic disciplines are turned upside down and inside out.

The proposed curriculum itself makes it very clear what the objective is: the absolute social transformation of the United States.

In essence, we’re looking at not only a new curriculum, but the rewriting of history, and a redefining of reality.

David Davenport: Localism Still Alive, Even in California

In a move with national implications, the California legislature halted a bill to force local governments to increase housing density. Think multiple homes on single lots and apartment buildings near transit centers.

It was a battle between Governor Gavin Newsom and Democrats on one side addressing a housing crisis, and California residents who had bought into their California dream communities on the other. Above all, it was a question of local control.

Liberals said there was no time to debate or compromise, this was a crisis. Everything in government is now wars and emergencies: Wars on poverty, crime, drugs, terror and 31 states of national emergency. We need action now.

Finally, a few Democrats who represented suburban districts said let’s take more time with this, seek something less extreme, find a compromise.

Good for them. Localism is still alive, even in California.
