AHA in the News, History Education

The AHA’s testimony objecting to Ohio House Bill 103, which would create a new, politically appointed task force to produce state social studies standards, was featured in an Ohio Capital Journal article by Susan Tebben about an amendment to the bill creating a timeframe for the proposed task force’s work. The task force, the AHA wrote, would be “an entirely new bureaucratic apparatus” designed for “overruling an open, democratic, and professional process simply because this bill’s sponsors did not get to dictate the terms of history education in the state through established channels. Ohio’s students deserve better.”
