This research compares Utah and California grade 8 social science state standards and instructional materials, like textbooks, to see how curriculum varies between the two. California was chosen because it was the first to pass curriculum mandates that required the contributions of LGBT Americans, persons with disabilities, and other minority groups to be included in the curriculum taught in K-12 schools. Utah was chosen because education history is complexly tied to the conservative LDS church.
