Scandal after new principal tries to reverse Afrocentric curriculum


HowardA middle school run by the Historically black Howard University fired three teachers. The new principal is apparently trying to reverse the school’s Afrocentric based curriculum for a more more mainstream one. Three social studies teachers refused to get on board and were fired.

Around the nation, there are many publicly funded charter schools that teach black history as the main subject. These are typically referred to Afrocentric schools.

The new principal, who is a black female, told media she didn’t want teachers wasting time “teaching about Kwanza and Marion Barry.”
