AHA in the News, History Education

AHA director of teaching and learning Brendan Gillis was quoted in a Washington Times article by Sean Salai about Louisiana becoming the seventh state to adopt the conservative media platform PragerU as an optional K-12 social studies resource. “PragerU has a clear ideological angle, but so do a host of other educational resource providers. What matters is the quality of the resources,” said Gillis, adding that he hoped teachers would choose to use resources from “trusted institutions” such as the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian Institution.
