Doesn’t Gavin Newsom have some bigger issues to deal with in California right now?

California Governor Mandates Ethnic Studies Courses for University Students
California governor Gavin Newsom (D.) signed a bill Monday mandating students in the California State University system take at least one course in ethnic studies despite concerns from the system’s board of trustees and some professors.
The bill overrides requirements the California State University board of trustees implemented in July. Beginning next year, the state’s public university system will be required to offer an ethnic studies course and include the class in lists of graduation requirements.
The board of trustees and some CSU faculty members have expressed concern over the precedent set by lawmakers dictating what students learn in school.
“Imagine if the California Legislature suddenly gets a Republican majority,” Peter Herman, a professor of English at San Diego State University, told the school’s student newspaper. “Once we have allowed the legislature to mandate a curricular matter, what argument do we have? The door is opened to that kind of change.”
