Social Studies

Overview

The California State Board of Education has worked hard with the Academic Standards Commission to develop history– social science standards that reflect California’s commitment to history–social science education. These standards emphasize historical narrative, highlight the roles of significant individuals throughout history, and convey the rights and obligations of citizenship.

In that spirit the standards proceed chronologically and call attention to the story of America as a noble experiment in a constitutional republic.
