WHEREAS, instructional materials in United States History and the Constitution provided by the South Carolina Department of Education reflect a bias toward Democratic presidents, praising the Clinton administration while failing to even mention the presidency of Ronald Reagan, and
WHEREAS, public schools, being funded with taxpayer dollars, are expected to offer a curriculum that is fully informative and free from partisan bias, and
WHEREAS, other states, encountering similar problems, have taken measures to remove liberal bias from their curricula, therefore
BE IT RESOLVED by the Pickens County Republican Party that the South Carolina Department of Education conduct a review of standards support materials for instruction in United States History and the Constitution, and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the South Carolina Department of Education release a copy of the End of Course examination in United States History and the Constitution in order to ensure transparency and political balance in its assessments.
