Governor's Veto Message
To the Members of the California State Assembly:

I am returning Assembly Bill 101 without my signature.
 
This bill would require the Superintendent of Public Instruction to oversee the development of a model curriculum in ethnic studies for adoption by the State Board of Education.
 
This bill creates what is essentially a redundant process. The Instructional Quality Commission is in the midst of revising the History-Social Science Framework, which includes guidance on ethnic studies courses.
 
Creating yet another advisory body specific to ethnic studies would be duplicative and undermine our current curriculum process.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
