This conflict was less apparent in California. The State of California Academic Standards Commission and the State School Board by-and-large followed the topics and chronology of the award-winning and broadly accepted California History/Social Science Curriculum Framework adopted in 1987 and renewed with slight revision in 1997. The final History/Social Science Content Standards document was approved in October 1998 and is available at:
