Calls to “Abolish History Classes and Remove Current History Books” Because They Lead to White Privilege

“Today, I’m calling for the abolishment of history classes in Illinois. We’re concerned that current school history teachings lead to White Privilege and a racist society,” Ford said.


Democratic state Representative La Shawn Ford has said history classes should be abolished in Illinois until a more inclusive curriculum is developed that doesn’t lead to White Privilege and racism.

Ford met with local leaders in Evanston, Chicago last week where he proposed the plan. He also introduced a bill in the Illinois House amending the school code to require the study of the American civil rights movement.

“Today, I’m calling for the abolishment of history classes in Illinois. We’re concerned that current school history teachings lead to White Privilege and a racist society,” Ford said.

Ford not only called on the state board of education to end the teaching of history, but for the local school districts to “take immediate action by removing the current history books and curriculum practices that unfairly communicate our history until a suitable alternative is developed.”
