Los Angeles Times: State lawmaker wants students taught about ‘Russian interference’ in last year’s presidential election


California schools would be required to teach how the Russian government “conspired to influence” last year’s presidential election under a bill written by a Bay Area legislator.

Assemblyman Marc Levine (D-San Rafael) said his proposal would require the California Board of Education to develop a curriculum plan that addresses the allegations made in the wake of President-elect Donald Trump’s victory on Nov. 8.

“California is the largest textbook market in the nation,” Levine said in a statement Tuesday. “Through this legislation, we can make sure students in California and across the United States receive accurate information about the 2016 presidential election.”

Levine’s proposal, introduced three days before Trump takes office, hinges on the Jan. 5 congressional testimony of U.S. intelligence officials that senior Russian officials approved an operation designed to interfere with the presidential race between Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
