This is a development that deserves serious scrutiny. When a uber-left-wing-loon like Loni Hancock "to revise how history and social science are taught in public schools" it likely has more to do with revising history than making the material current. California instruction continues to de-emphasize our Founding Fathers, the principles on which this nation was founded, the Revoluionary War, God, Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, the Constitution and Bill of Rights, WWI and WWII, Ronald Reagan, capitalism; and emphasizes diversity, socialism, the union movement,the Vietnam War resitance movement, FDR,JFK, Martin Luther King, and Barack Obama. The last thing we need is a Bezerkley loon organizing an effort for left-wing-loons revising history education.

So Gretchen, you are proposing that History lessons only cover things that you like and not things that you don't? That would be the ultimate revisionism!

Hallie, you missed the point entirely. The 'revision' of historical accounts is not in our children's best interest. Gretchen highlighted areas that will be short changed or revised to fit an agenda that mirrors the feelings of those events based on the opinion of berkeley socialists.
The further emphasis of events that are emotionally gratifying to liberals (war protests, anarchists violent methods, etc.) do a disservice to events that had more impact and changed more peoples lives.
But, hey, with dems, it's all about feelings and emotions and no logic.
