Springfield’s interim school superintendent is refusing to yank a workbook at Grant Middle School that gun rights supporters say paints a false picture of the Second Amendment.
The workbook… which was created by a teacher who has since retired… says the amendment provides for the right to own weapons, as long as they have been registered. Gun registration is not a provision of the U.S. Constitution.
Interim superintendent Bob Hill says materials created by teachers are generally not vetted, and says it’s not his job as superintendent to micromanage those materials. He acknowledged that Grant’s superintendent could recommend that the workbook be modified.
Hill says the book was an attempt to explain the modern-day implications of the Second Amendment… not to prosyletize or indoctrinate 7th-graders.
