Grant Middle School will review and either amend or stop using a workbook that misstated what’s contained in the Second Amendment to the Constitution. Pro-gun groups have been furious over the material… which claimed the 2nd Amendment provides for gun registration.
Interim superintendent Bob Hill initially refused to yank or change the workbook, which was created 14 years ago by a Grant teacher who has since retired. But he says it’s appropriate for Grant administrators to make that review and take appropriate action. Hill concedes in an email to district staff that the passage on the 2nd Amendment was, quote, “not totally accurate,” or was at the very least “unartfully” worded. Hill says he is convinced the teacher who designed the material did not have a political agenda.
The controversy has become a major issue on conservative and pro-gun websites, and on talk radio and TV. Hill refused a request for a recorded interview on the latest developments.
