A Colorado school district has come under fire for trying to change its history curriculum — and its own students have schooled it on what real American history is.
Earlier this month, the school district of Jefferson County, Colo. — the second-largest district in the state — announced it was considering a change to the Advanced Placement U.S. history curriculum to “promote citizenship, patriotism, essentials and benefits of the free-market system, respect for authority and respect for individual rights” and not “encourage or condone civil disorder, social strike or disregard of the law.”
If the proposal passes, the district’s conservative-majority school board would establish a committee to review textbooks and other classroom materials to see if they meet this new criteria. In other words, any textbook that didn’t seem “patriotic enough” (an aggressively arbitrary and potentially very dangerous label) would be cut.
