A new law in New Hampshire requires schools to create alternative lesson plans for anytime a parent objects to a lesson. Any lesson. So if a parent doesn't want their child to learn about the Holocaust, the school has to provide a different lesson for that child.
This individualized curriculum that gives parents control over what their kids learn could better suit individual learning needs. But it could also result in students not learning everything they should. It also puts a greater burden on already stretched-thin teachers and schools.
Learn more about this on the New York Times website's Room for Debate where a number of experts weigh in with opinions on "Should Parents Control What Kids Learn at School."
