Governor vetoes California bill requiring ethnic studies



SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Gavin Newsom has vetoed a bill that would have made ethnic studies a California high school graduation requirement, citing controversy over the model curriculum. Assemblyman Jose Medina, a fellow Democrat, criticized the veto of his bill late Wednesday as a failure to push back against President Donald Trump. Newsom said he supports the ethnic studies concept, but cited ongoing discussions and revisions on what should be included in the classes. The bill would have required high schools to provide ethnic studies starting in the 2025-26 school year and would have made ethnic studies a high school graduation requirement starting in the 2029-30 school year.
