The Organization of American Historians has become the latest group to issue a statement about the controversy over Mitch Daniels's efforts, while governor of Indiana, to prevent the teaching of the works of the late Howard Zinn.
"The OAH regards the current episode as a 'teachable moment' when instructors in American history at every level have the opportunity to convey to our students how historians debate ideas and assess the merit of each others’ written work. We invite members to contact us with their account of classroom exercises and discussion questions that they have used, or intend to use in class, to promote discussion of such issues. We promise to post as many of them as we can on our website to encourage open discussion," says the statement.
