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

I am returning Assembly Bill 189 without my signature.

This bill would establish a model curriculum in service learning for adoption by the State Board of Education.

I believe this bill is unnecessary. The Instructional Quality Commission carefully considered the subject of service learning when it was updating the History-Social Science Framework and embedded it throughout the curriculum framework that the State Board of Education subsequently adopted.

The appendix also includes a section "Practice Civic Engagement: Service Learning in the History-Social Science Framework."
