California's LGBTQ+ social studies framework requires that all social studies curriculum engages in ‘fair and equitable coverage’ per the state’s specifications and the suggestions of the FAIR Act Coalition. While we are required to provide such content, individual districts, schools, and teachers may determine if they wish to cover those articles with their students.
