AHA in the News

AHA executive director Jim Grossman was quoted in an op-ed in the Washington Post by Greg Sargent on a lawsuit by teachers in Tennessee challenging a law restricting the teaching of race and gender. “Can I teach that in the state of Tennessee, for over a hundred years the textbooks said one race is superior to another?” Grossman asked. “It’s true. . . . All teachers choose what is important,” he said. “It is utterly impossible to teach in a situation where every decision can be questioned by an uninformed parent with the force of law behind it.”
