Haslam: Learning Tennessee history 'critical' for students
WVLT/AP/Peg Broadcasting News Tuesday October 4, 2016

Republican Gov. Bill Haslam said Monday that he's concerned that too much Tennessee history could be stripped from teaching requirements in the state's public schools under a proposed update to social studies standards.

A draft version would remove several Tennessee events from U.S. history courses, including major milestones in the civil rights movements for minorities and women and Civil War battles fought on state soil.

The state Board of Education is required under state law to review subject standards every six years. The current draft was assembled with the help of 16,000 comments, submitted mostly by K-12 teachers.

The State Board of Education's director of policy and research, Laura Encalade, said last week that teachers are struggling to cover the breadth of required topics each school year. This new draft reflects efforts to make the standards "more manageable for teachers and for students as well," she said.

The proposed standards are posted on the State Board of Education's website at They don't highlight any additions or deletions. Public comments will be accepted until the committee's next meeting on Oct. 28.
