Fair, Accurate, Inclusive, and Respectful Education Act

Make history at your school with the FAIR/unFAIR toolkit!

The state of California requires schools to teach about the contributions of women, people of color, and other historically underrepresented groups. On January 1, 2012, the state updated these guidelines to end the exclusion of people with disabilities and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people from history and social studies lessons.

With the launch of our FAIR/unFAIR campaign, you can join the campaign to make sure your school is following the updated education guidelines. Best of all, you can rate your school with the FAIR/unFAIR survey!

 Get the Facts!

Research:

LGBTQ-inclusive class lessons—especially those rated as supportive of LGBTQ people and issues—dramatically affect students’ feelings of safety at school. Our latest research reports show how!
