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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2353 without my signature.

This bill requires the California Department of Education to identify professional development programs in culturally responsive instruction and provide links to those programs on its website.

Clearly, it's important to train teachers in cultural competency, which is why California's teacher preparation programs provide instruction on this issue. The Department currently provides resources and links related to culturally responsive instruction on its website. If this information needs to be enhanced or expanded, I'm confident the Superintendent can handle that request without this bill.


Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
