(Washington Post) California textbooks will teach about the significance of President Obama’s election under a new law signed Monday by Gov. Jerry Brown (D).

The measure, AB 1912, requires the California Instructional Quality Commission to consider including instruction on Obama’s election during its next revision of history-social science curriculum.

This curriculum hasn’t been updated in nine years, the bill’s sponsor, Assemblyman Chris Holden (D), said in a statement, and will not be updated until the 2015-2016 school year.
