Corbett Encourages Holocaust Education

08.08.14 | Sarah Harnisch

House Bill 1424 allows public schools in Pennsylvania to offer instruction in the Holocaust, as well as other forms of genocide and human rights violations. If a school chooses to provide instruction in this subject area, the instruction must be integrated within social studies and language arts. The material taught does have to be age-appropriate. Corbett said the Holocaust happened-- and should be taught.
