MADISON — Wisconsin has earned an “F” on the Thomas B. Fordham Institute’s latest report card on history and civics standards in U.S. schools.
The Badger State is among 20 states to receive an “inadequate” score on the education think tank’s The State of State Standards for Civics and U.S. History evaluation. But Wisconsin joins nine states in receiving a failing grade. The others are: Delaware, Illinois, Maine, Montana, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Wyoming.
As Wisconsin schools confront controversial teaching concepts in the Age of Wokeness, history and civics curriculum is being rewritten in the name of far left political activism or the courses are being abandoned altogether.
