Senate Bill 2052: Requires the Teaching of the Nation's Founding Documents in High School

Summary:

While the teaching of these courses is not objectionable, this would begin to impose required subjects on home instruction programs and would open the door for other curriculum requirements.

HSLDA's Position:
Oppose.
Action Requested:
None at this time
Status:

1/04/2011     (Senate)     Referred to Education Committee
2/01/2011     (Senate)     Died in committee
