The standards will force students to "examine every question or moral conflict primarily in terms of race and group identity," according to the report.

A new report shows how Minnesota’s proposed social studies standards are “unacceptably politicized” and “deficient.”

Earlier this week the Center of the American Experiment published a report by historian and academic Wilfred McClay titled “Minnesota’s Academic Standards Among the Nation’s Worst.”

McClay, tasked to evaluate the third draft of the Minnesota Department of Education’s K-12 Academic Standards in Social Studies, concluded that “the standards are so deeply flawed that mere revision will fail to make them compatible with the fundamental aims of civic education.”

According to the report, other standards have eliminated teaching the “basic facts” about European and American history and will force students to “examine every question or moral conflict primarily in terms of race and group identity.”

In a Wednesday statement, Center of the American Experiment policy fellow Catrin Wigfall commended McClay’s report for its “blunt assessment of Minnesota’s standards” and hoped the Department of Education would “return to the drawing board and start over.”
