Parent has called for the White Mountains Regional School Board to reconsider the high school’s Humanities program

A parent has called for the White Mountains Regional School Board to reconsider the high school’s Humanities program. During the school board meeting on March 24, Teresa Russo of Whitefield delivered a 15-minute statement in opposition to the five-year-old Humanities program, which takes a multi-disciplinary approach to teaching history. Last year the course replaced the English and social studies requirements for freshmen and sophomores. The School Board took no action. However, in an unrelated development, the School Board’s Education Planning Subcommittee recently held an unplanned discussion on the Humanities program. They agreed to move forward with a program audit sometime in the coming months. Plans remain under discussion and the nature of the audit was not immediately clear. There is no timetable for the audit to be completed.
