Controversial Colorado history plan still alive

Oct 3, 2014 by

GOLDEN, Colorado (AP) — A suburban Denver school board under fire for proposing a review of Advanced Placement U.S. history has voted to include students, parents and administrators in its curriculum reviews, but isn’t backing off the original history proposal that has sent waves of students into the streets to protest.

Hundreds of students, teachers and parents packed the Thursday evening school board meeting and watched live video on a screen set up outside.

Some in the audience yelled “resign” and “recall, recall” as the board voted 3-2 to expand the membership on two existing curriculum review committees. They will now include students, parents and administrators and their meetings will have to be held in public.

It’s not immediately clear whether the committees will review the history course.
