Post Schiff Urges Expansion of Armenian Genocide Education in California

LOS ANGELES (Asbarez)Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) recently announced that he, along with seven of his California delegation colleagues, has written to major publishers of social studies and history textbooks in California to urge them to include additional information and context about the Armenian Genocide.

Congressman Adam Schiff

In 2014, California Governor Brown signed AB 1915, requiring the Armenian Genocide to be incorporated into high school social studies and history curriculums. The letter asks textbook publishers to include additional information about the Armenian Genocide in forthcoming textbook editions, noting that it help students learn about the Genocide both as an independent historical event, but also situated in the broader context of modern genocides, ethnic cleansing, and systemic human rights abuses.

The Armenian Genocide is a seminal event, and belongs in any course of study that considers human rights and genocide in history and in the modern context, Rep. Schiff said on Sept. 20. California has taken the lead in encouraging the study of the Armenian Genocide in social studies and history classes, but putting that principle into practice will require textbook publishers to develop new texts that properly address the Genocide, and contextualize it with other 20th century genocides, as well as informing students about the unprecedented humanitarian response to the Genocide by the United States.

The letter was also signed by Rep. Jackie Speier, Rep. Anna Eshoo, Rep. Judy Chu, Rep. Grace Napolitano, Rep. Zoe Lofgren, Rep. Brad Sherman, and Rep. Alan Lowenthal.
