Maryland Announces Plan To Strengthen Holocaust Education

October 25th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

The Maryland State Department of Education has responded to concerns about Holocaust instruction by announcing plans to enhance and expand how it's taught.

A statement released by the department Thursday says the changes include teaching middle schoolers about anti-Semitism and strengthening Holocaust education for high schoolers. The announcement comes days before the anniversary of a massacre at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.

News outlets report advocates and elected officials had raised concerns about state curriculum guidelines. Baltimore Jewish Council executive director Howard Libit says the council thought the guidelines didn't do enough to ensure students learn about the Holocaust.

State Superintendent Karen B. Salmon said in the statement that the education department plans to provide teachers with tools to help them teach the Holocaust with confidence.

    Hopefully this education will reach all of Western Md and it will include a visit to the wonderful United States Holocaust Museum in Washington DC or traveling programs from the museum. The Holocaust is real. There is only one way to teach it. This education along with understanding Antisemitism is incredibly important.

    Wow, I’m quite surprised. This has been up for an entire 24 hours and not one comment from the Holocaust deniers, flat earthers or other Trump faithful.

    This would be great if they actually teach the real history and don’t figure out some way to blame America for it
