Law on Genocide education comes into effect in California

When the clock struck midnight on Thursday morning, a number of the 930 bills Governor Jerry Brown signed into law went into effect across California. One of the new rules  is about Genocide education, according to the Los Angeles Times.  The law reads:

Genocide lessons: State education officials must consider incorporating lessons about the Armenian genocide and other mass killings, such as those in Rwanda and Darfur, into curriculum standards that will be updated in 2015. Lessons about genocide should include oral testimony from survivors, rescuers and witnesses.
