New Mexico GOP tells schools to reject social studies change | app


SANTA FE, NM (AP) — A Republican lawmaker is telling New Mexico school districts to defy state education rules and ignore the department’s recently revised K-12 social studies standards. of state education, calling them racially divisive.

The standards were the first comprehensive overhaul of history, geography, economics and social studies since 2001. In addition to race, they added sections including LGBT history, the terrorist attacks September 11 and personal finances. Some other states, however, have restricted the teaching of race in moves that New Mexico Republicans have applauded. They see the issue as a major issue in this year’s gubernatorial race.
