SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA, May 16, 2017 (CDE): The California Department of Education has posted a web page at ”source” above which allows access to 14 programs teaching history at various grade levels. Of interest to Hindus are those that cover grades six and seven when India and the Hindu religion is covered. In theory, these new programs reflected the revised Framework for History-Social Studies which has been revised over the last three years by the Board’s Instructional Quality Commission. They are called ”programs” because all are either entirely Web-based, or have extensive web resources for a printed textbook.

Publishers submitting for sixth and seventh grade include Discovery Education, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company, McGraw-Hill School Education LLC, National Geographic Learning, Pearson Scott Foresman and Prentice Hall, and Teacher’s Curriculum Institute.

Instructions for submitting public comment on these programs is available here:


Man needs a guru. But a man must have faith in the guru’s words. He succeeds in spiritual life by looking on his guru as God Himself.
— Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa (1836-1886)
