Jeffco School Board History

Somehow, while updating this post, I brilliantly managed to delete it all. So this is a redo with added tweets.

History curriculum should not, "encourage or condone civil disorder, social strife or disregard of the law."

There have been some hilarious responses to these proposed curriculum changes under the twitter hashtag  Here are some of my favorites:

Several of these were taken from the Westword blog's post. (Some spammer has started using the tag, making it hard to find the earlier posts.)
