SACRAMENTO, Calif. — For the first time, the state's task force on inclusive education met in the Capitol. The topic of the meeting was how to diversify textbooks in California.
Thurmond called on publishing firms to pledge to diversify their textbooks and resources and to work with the task force. Thurmond said representatives from Benchmark Education, CPM Educational Programs, The College Board, and Studies Weekly provided examples of what their companies are doing to provide broader narratives and depictions that are inclusive of stories and histories of often-underrepresented groups.
