A controversial Grant Middle School workbook that misstated the provisions of the Second Amendment will be amended or scrapped.
That word comes from interim Springfield school superintendent Bob Hill, who had earlier declined to change the material, which was created 14 years ago by a Grant teacher who has since retired.
Gun rights groups had erupted over the workbook’s claim that the Second Amendment allows gun ownership, provided that the weapons are registered.
There is no registration requirement in the Amendment.
Hill says the review and final decision on the material will come from Grant Middle School administrators, which he says is the appropriate place for such reviews.
He insists there was no political agenda behind the original misstatement.
