Questions remain after Jeffco curriculum review voteHistorians in the News
In a 3-2 vote, the Jefferson County board of education voted Thursday to adopt a proposal penned by Superintendent Dan McMinimee to create a new curriculum review committee. It isn't backing off the original history proposal that has sent waves of students into the streets to protest.
The board voted over the objections of the panel's two-member minority, who wanted more time to study the compromise proposal offered by the McMinimee. Minority member Lesley Dahlkemper protested that the vote violated the board's policy of not immediately voting on new proposals.
McMinimee called the proposal a good middle ground. He developed his proposal as a response to two proposed board resolutions recommending review of curriculum including AP U.S. History and elementary health courses.
