Stories From The Fringe – ‘Goedde wants ‘Atlas Shrugged’ as required reading’

Idehoe

I’ve said it before….I will stack the nuts in the Northwest (especially I-De-Hoe) against ANY other State.

He said it was just a ‘joke’ but the Committee agreed to move it along…….

‘The chairman of the Senate Education Committee says he would like to require Idaho high school students to read Ayn Rand’s 1957 novel “Atlas Shrugged” before graduating’.

‘In a tongue-and-cheek moment during Tuesday’s education committee meeting, Goedde introduced legislation to make the novel required reading and that students pass a test on it’.

‘Goedde says the novel that’s become must-read material for libertarians could stimulate lively debate in high schools. He also credited the book for turning his son Brian a Republican’.

‘The committee agreed to introduce the bill. But Goedde says he has no intention of moving it along, saying he did it partially in jest and out of frustration over voters rejecting online course requirements last fall’.
