In 2005, the California State Board of Education reviewed social studies textbooks for middle schools. The textbooks indoctrinate children with Abrahamic religions and teach biblical events as actual facts while treating Hinduism in a derogatory manner. The board failed to provide equal opportunities and equal representation to every religion and culture. CAPEEM was formed to represent parents in California in a lawsuit against the State Board of Education.
