Junior High social studies course said to distort american history by tim Boxer a Junior High school course teaching about religion in american history is described As having a the effect of altering the meaning of an analysis of a social studies guide basis of the course is contained in a report submitted recently by the Indianapolis jewish Community relations Council to the City Board of education. A statement by the school Board is expected in the near future. Prepared by in arc director Albert d. Chernin and education chairman Julian Kiser with Rev. Jack Mendelsohn of All souls unitarian Church accepting joint responsibility the 70,000-word report warns against a a conscious Effort to teach about while the Chernin report does not preclude the teaching of religion where it is essential to the course it does strongly recommend that the social studies guide be withdrawn from the City Public schools because it discusses theology not his tory. This tends to Divide children according to religion the report states. The in arc cites instances where christianity is presented As the fulfilment of Judaism. A one is treated As something finished ancient and foreign while the other is treated As something unending modern and familiar. One is treated As the old and the dead the other the new and alive. The tone of the social studies course according to the in arc analysis sets a most unsound democrats a heritage the program or the social studies teachers of approach to religion.

In a counter action to the catholics protestants Are using the coercive Arm of government to teach youngsters religion in the Public school system. Such devices As the a released time program have been used for this purpose. In this instance an hour each week is taken from school time and used for religious study. Chernin cited the Case of Indianapolis where a social studies course has been developed with religious overtones. The course whose purpose is to teach about religion in american history is used in the seventh and eighth grades. A it is bad pedagogy and Sloppy history a Chernin asserted. Instead of seeking truth he said it now becomes the primary function of schools to inculcate something. In the process history is a altered and facts he stated Are made to fit preconceived ideas. citing references to god and religion is to convey the impression that All that is left of religion in America is a few Public inscriptions on coins and buildings and that it has got to the Point where we have to count the number of times god is mentioned in the declaration of a recommendation made in the report would establish a committee of educators religious leaders historians political scientists philosophers and social scientists As Well As Lay leaders a to develop a social studies curriculum that could serve As a Model for the entire nation.
