AHA in the News

The American Historical Association, the Virginia Social Studies Leaders Consortium, and the Virginia Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development “have collaborated to share their collective knowledge, experience, and expertise” to draft proposed history and social science standards for K–12 schools. “As the largest organization of professional historians in the world, the AHA can provide expertise and insights into history education at all levels, and we were happy to be helpful,” AHA executive director James Grossman told the Virginia Mercury. The new draft standards, which are expected to come before the Virginia Board of Education in January, were also featured in articles from Virginia Public Media and DC News Now.
