Submission + - California Moves to Block Texas' Textbook Changes (mercurynews.com)

eldavojohn writes: Yesterday the Texas textbook controversy was reported internationally but the news today heats up the debate as California, a state on the other side of the political spectrum, introduces legislation that would block these textbook changes inside California. Democrat Senator Leland Yee (you may know him as a Senator often tackling ESRB ratings on video games) introduced SB 1451 that would require California's school board to review books for any of Texas' changes and block the material if it is found. The bill's text alleges that said changes would be "a sharp departure from widely accepted historical teachings" and "a threat to the apolitical nature of public school governance and academic content standards in California."
