Idaho Republicans Pass Western Civilization “Plank” As A Part of their 2020 Party Platform!!!

Great news! Thanks to Bjorn Handeen of the Idaho Virtual Academy, the Idaho Republican Party has approved affirming the importance of Western Civilization. The whole Convention voted to pass this proposal and it is now a part of Idaho’s Republican Party Platform. The wording is:

“We believe we are inheritors of a distinct Western Civilization, and that our traditional culture safeguards our identity as a free people.”

Next, we hope to specify increasing High School Graduation Requirement for Idaho’s High Schools to include Western Civilization.

Idaho’s Republican Party has become the very first organization to associate themselves with this initiative. Thusfar, Idaho’s Democrats at all levels have shown no interest in even hearing about this proposal at any level.

This fine article was written between the time when the Committee passed the proposal and the whole Convention’s approval.

I am a veteran public school High School History Teacher, specializing in the history of Ancient, Medieval, and Modern Western Civilization. Generations ago, Americans erroneously removed Western Civilization requirements from the High School curriculum. Here and elsewhere, I am trying to restore the teaching of this essential heritage to young Americans. I invite you to join me in this effort! In fact, without the efforts and talents of others, this initiative will surely fail.
