Interim Guidelines for Evaluation of Instructional Materials with Respect to Social Content.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Curriculum Framework and Instructional Materials Unit.
The purpose of these guidelines is to provide consistent, systematic standards for evaluating instructional materials proposed for use in California's public schools to ensure compliance with the Education Code. Though they are not intended to supplant the evaluator's judgment, the guidelines do comprise the minimum standards for acceptability in order to portray accurately cultural and racial diversity, female and male roles, and depiction of older and disabled persons in society. Also categorized in the guidelines are the entrepreneur and labor, religion, ecology and environment, dangerous substances, thrift, fire prevention, humane treatment of animals and people, and the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution.
