Kim Hendren’s Howard Zinn ban dies unceremoniously in the Arkansas state legislature. SAD!

Several weeks ago we wrote about an effort by Arkansas state representative Kim Hendren to ban the works of legendary progressive historian Howard Zinn from classrooms and curricula throughout the state. Today, we’re happy to report that, according to Bill Bigelow (co-director of the Zinn Education Project), that legislation has been quashed by the House’s education committee.
