Is the history curriculum “biased”?

Posted by:

No, the history curriculum in the Newton Public Schools is not “biased.” It is a curriculum in which students learn factual historical information and develop an appreciation for the range of perspectives that exist on those topics. Teaching with objectivity, respect, and intellectual rigor, our faculty and administrators provide students with the skills to separate fact from opinion, challenge their own thinking, and develop opinions through the study and testing of ideas. As has always been our practice, we will continue to thoughtfully and respectfully follow the curriculum guidelines established by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
