Mississippi House Bill Seeks to Ban 'Partisan Agenda or Philosophy' in History Classes
In response to the recent conservative rewriting of the Texas social studies standards, the Mississippi House of Representatives is considering a bill that would prevent history courses from promoting "any partisan agenda or philosophy."
According to this article, the bill would prevent a teacher from endorsing liberal ideology, conservative ideology, or any ideology in-between (The one case study offered in the article is a parent complaining about her child getting indoctrinated in history class with liberal idea).
Should this bill pass, it should get very interesting when Mississippi officials try to enforce it.
