The war over teaching history is heating up, again
Back in the mid-1990’s a debacle ensued when highly biased national history standards were proposed. In the end, the US Senate adopted a resolution condemning the standards and shortly after that the congress pulled money from the group creating those standards. It wasn’t a happy experience.
Now, new issues with public school education standards in the area of history and social studies have raised their ugly heads again, and the situation promises to be even more contentious than the brouhaha already swirling around the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and the Next Generation Science Standards.
Standards for history and social studies once again are in the crosshairs, and it looks like concerned citizens are loading up to start shooting with high caliber ammunition.
