Controversial Constitution Workbook to be Edited and Used in Future Lessons


Teachers at Grant Middle School will use a controversial workbook on the U.S. Constitution again next year… but only after editing it to remove a passage that misstated the provisions of the Second Amendment.

 

But that may not end the dispute or the debate.

 

At Monday’s school board meeting, interim superintendent Bob Hill again defended his handling of the erroneous material… calling it an issue of academic freedom and saying it was appropriate for Grant staff to make the call on the workbook.

 

But with several police officers on standby at the meeting, one angry parent slammed his hand down on a podium after berating Hill… and school board members say they’re expecting a bigger and more vocal demonstration on the issue at the April 21st meeting.
