In California, State Assembly Member Dan Logue has introduced an Assembly resolution supporting the addition of Sikhism to world religion courses offered by the University of California (UC), California State University (CSU), and California Community Colleges systems (via the American Sikh Political Action Committee):
“I am a proud supporter of the Sikh community which has the largest community in the United States in the Yuba-Sutter area,” said Logue. “It’s about time that the CSU and UCs recognize the importance that Sikhism has as the world’s fifth largest religion.”
The resolution, entitled ACR-20 Postsecondary education: instruction in world religions: Sikhism, “would recognize the need for the inclusion of Sikhism in world religions, Eastern religions, Asian, and South Asian courses at all postsecondary educational institutions and recommend that the concerned governing bodies consider including Sikhism in their institution’s world religions, Eastern religions, Asian, and South Asian courses.”
Last September, California Governor, Jerry Brown signed a bill (SB 1540) into law to open California’s high school curriculum to revision so as to potentially include material on Sikhism.
