Hot Education Bills During Final Weeks of Legislative Activity
As the Legislature winds down for the year (their last official day of work for the year will be September 14), we want to provide a summary of the major education issues pending in these final weeks.
The biggest fights this year are more political than usual. There are heated debates around instructional materials (AB 1078, see description below) along with an emerging conversation over if/how schools disclose information to parents about a student’s gender identity. We are expecting a last-minute measure to be introduced next week, likely backed by Governor Newsom, to address this issue. We will provide an analysis of that measure when it is in print.
