Here We Go Again, Another State Lawmaker Introduces Bill to Ban Book

A member of Arkansas’s House of Representatives wants Howard Zinn’s A People History of the United States removed from the shelves of public and charter schools.

According to the Independent, more than 250 Arkansas teachers have signed up for the Zinn Education Project—an initiative to have Zinn’s work taught in primary and secondary schools—to take advantage of the history lessons it offers. The Project has also pledged to send a free copy of A People’s History to anyone who requests one and has tweeted a photo of high school students from Batesville, the county seat for Hendren’s district, protesting his bill.
