Does your school follow the FAIR Education Act? California has long required public schools to teach about the contributions of women, people of color, and other historically underrepresented groups. With the FAIR Education Act, 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.
The law went into effect on January 1, 2012 -- so if you're not learning about the role and contributions of LGBT people and people with disabilities in your history and social studies classes, your school is breaking the law.
