Support Social Studies Education in the Hudson Valley
We must remain vigilant in our support of advocacy efforts to retain quality social studies programs in New York State. There is statewide concern among social studies educators that the focus on Common Core skills in other areas has marginalized state support for the unique disciplines within the social studies curriculum. Membership in a regional organization such as MHSSC strengthens our voice and exerts pressure on elected officials.
