South Dakota drops early American history as a high school requirementBreaking News
Monday, the South Dakota Board of Education approved new guidelines that do not require high schools to teach [early] U.S. history beginning next year.
Some college history professors are against the social studies requirement saying history has the chance to repeat itself if students are not taught early American history.
"I don't like it. My name is actually on the college professor's list that opposed them," said Michael Mullin, Augustana history professor.
Professor Mullin has been teaching for 27 years. He says students who take a college history course such as 'American History Before 1877' will be overwhelmed.
