Assembly Bill 873 – Requests The Instructional Quality Commission Include Media Literacy In The Curriculum Framework
Existing law establishes the Instructional Quality Commission (the Commission) and requires the Commission recommend curriculum frameworks to the State Board of Education. Existing law requires the State Board adopt standards, rules, and regulations for school library services.
AB 873 expands existing and requires the Commission to consider incorporating the Model Library Standards into the next revision of the English Language Arts/English Language Development curriculum framework after January 1, 2024. The bill also requires the Commission consider incorporation of the medial literacy content at each grade level into mathematics, science, and history-social science curriculum when those frameworks are next reviewed after January 1, 2024.
(AB 873 adds Section 33548 to the Education Code.)
