The Holocaust and Armenian Genocide could soon be required reading in Michigan
With a signature from Governor Rick Snyder some of the darkest chapters in human history may soon become required reading in Michigan classrooms, WLNS reports.
Both the House and Senate approved legislation that would make the Holocaust and the 1915 Armenian Genocide required subjects for students between 8th and 12th grade.
The bill also creates a 15 member Genocide Education Panel.
The Senate narrowly turned down an amendment that would have added more massacres to the requirements including those in Rwanda and Bosnia.
