Louisiana Classrooms to Feature PragerU Curriculum – American Faith

Conservative educational curriculum PragerU is making its way into Louisiana classrooms as a result of a collaboration between the organization and the state superintendent of education to offer educational films to pupils.

Teachers could decide to incorporate the program into their social studies curriculum as early as August. Critics and leftists refer to the curriculum as unsettling revisionist history, although it describes itself as a resource for people who cherish liberty.

“The partnership with PragerU is simply about providing teachers with a resource they might use and consider as they teach their students the freedom frameworks,” Brumley stated in response to criticism.

Local news outlet WBRZ inquired about the plans of the schools in Livingston Parish, Ascension Parish, and East Baton Rouge Parish regarding their usage of the PragerU resources. Ascension Parish was the only one to reply, publishing this statement:

In Ascension Public Schools, our primary commitment is to provide a balanced and comprehensive education to all our students. We understand that the Louisiana Department of Education has recently approved a new social studies video resource.

To determine the appropriateness of this resource for our students, we will be implementing our district’s rigorous vetting process. This process involves a collaborative team of instructional supervisors and teachers who will thoroughly review the content.

We are committed to transparency and will keep our parents informed throughout this evaluation process. Our goal is to ensure that all resources used in our schools support a well-rounded and unbiased education for every student.”
