Re: Boston Public Schools to Eliminate History & Social Science Departments

As a follow-up to the post from Friday, here is a link to a response from the Interim Superintendent of Schools for the Boston Public Schools, thoughtfully provided by the Executive Secretary of the Massachusetts Council for the Social Studies, June Coutu.

Boston Public Schools to Eliminate History & Social Science Departments

It was announced today that the Boston Public School department is "reorganizing" by eliminating all Departments of History & Social Sciences in all schools and folding the departments into the Department of English Language Arts as a "Humanities Department" with the currciculum determined by the ELA Common Core Standards.  Certified history department heads/chairs are being laid off and, apaprently, no certified history specialist will be hired to replace any of these teachers.
