Law on Genocide education comes into effect in California

16:32, 05 Jan 2015

When the clock struck midnight on Thursday morning, a number of the
930 bills Governor Jerry Brown signed into law went into effect across
California. One of the new rules is about Genocide education,
according to the Los Angeles Times. The law reads:

Genocide lessons: State education officials must consider
incorporating lessons about the Armenian genocide and other mass
killings, such as those in Rwanda and Darfur, into curriculum
standards that will be updated in 2015. Lessons about genocide should
include oral testimony from survivors, rescuers and witnesses.
