AHA in the News

The AHA’s letter to the South Dakota Board of Education Standards opposing the social studies standards revisions process undertaken in 2022 was featured in articles from South Dakota news outlets KELOLAND and DRGNews (via the Associated Press). In an interview with KELOLAND, AHA executive director Jim Grossman explained how the AHA became involved. “History teachers in South Dakota contacted us and said we have this problem, could you be helpful? Could you write a letter that explains why this new proposal is not in the interest of students, in the interest of people in South Dakota.”
