We applaud any state’s work to enact policies which advance the accurate and equitable portrayal of the cultural and racial diversity of American society — one of our goals in publishing Reading with Relevance is to ensure that teachers have curricular materials and instructional supports to make this vision a reality.  Our curriculum has been approved by the California Department of Education for meeting the state’s Social Content Framework.  Visit CDE’s Social Content Framework website, and search for Reading with Relevance to verify the program’s approval.
