AHA in the News

AHA executive director Jim Grossman was quoted in a Washington Times article by Sean Salai about the influx of state-level legislation banning or limiting the teaching of “divisive concepts,” including critical race theory, in public schools. “History education should help students learn what actually happened, and to think, discuss and argue with one another about roots, continuities and implications,” Grossman said. “Everything has a history, including the divisions that plague our nation and communities. To heal those divisions, our next generation must understand their evolution.”
