JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Alaska lawmakers have advanced a bill that would require school districts to include American constitutionalism in their coursework.
The House Education Committee moved Rep. Wes Keller's bill Friday.
The bill would require that school districts include the Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights, U.S. Constitution, Articles of Confederation and the Federalist Papers in their curriculums. It does not require specific testing. Keller, a Republican, has called the bill a soft mandate.
