Teaching Controversy Has Always Been Controversial

Just in time for you Thanksgiving dinner table debate – it’s the new episode of Have You Heard! When a brawl breaks out over the bird this year, don’t just blame politics—blame the schools. You see, coping with contention is a learned skill—a skill that our schools have been actively avoiding for over a century. In this episode, we talk with historian Jon Zimmerman about the teaching of controversial issues: past, present, and future. It’s Have You Heard, episode #30! Note: full transcript coming soon.
