NCSS Joins AHA in Signing Statement on the
"White House Conference on American History"
Silver Spring, MD -- The National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) Board of Directors recently approved NCSS to sign on to a statement authored by the American Historical Association (AHA) and supported by over three dozen additional organizations condemning the recent “White House Conference on American History,” deploring the tendentious use of history and history education to stoke politically motivated culture wars.
The AHA is a nonprofit organization founded for the promotion of historical studies, which provides leadership for the discipline by protecting academic freedom, developing professional standards, supporting scholarship and innovative teaching, and helping to sustain and enhance the work of historians.
Both NCSS and the AHA strongly encourage you to share the statement with your networks.
