Republican lawmakers in Maryland criticize a history lesson at a public high school near Baltimore where President Donald Trump was compared to Nazis and Communists.
A slide used in an Advanced Placement history course at Loch Raven High School in Towson shows a photo of Trump above photos of a Nazi swastika and a flag of the Soviet Union. Read two captions ‘wants to bring a group of people together and build a giant wall’ and ‘oh, that’s why it sounds so familiar!’
The Baltimore Sun reports that state Del. Kathy Szeliga ensured that copies of the slide and the school system response were sent to her fellow legislator in Baltimore County. She also posted the image on Facebook.

‘It’s terrible. It’s an educational offense, “Szeliga said during a meeting of the province delegation on Friday.
Wade Kach, alderman of Baltimore County, called it “a piece of propaganda” that didn’t belong in a classroom.
The school system said the slide was not part of the resources it provides for history history teachers.
Charles Herndon, a spokesperson for the schools in Baltimore County, said students in advanced high school classes are “critical, intelligent students who can draw their own conclusions and draw their own conclusions.”

The Baltimore County schools issued a statement: “The topics discussed in class included World Wars and the attempts of some history leaders to restrict or prevent migration to certain countries. Separately and outside the context of the lesson, the image may be misunderstood, “the school district said in a statement.
‘In our Advanced Placement (AP) lessons, which are college-level courses, we expect and encourage analysis and discussion of historical and current events, even if they are considered controversial. This lesson was not intended to make a political statement. If a student is concerned about discussing a controversial problem, schools have the means to address it and support the student. ”
The school system said the issue had become a personnel issue, “which will be addressed appropriately by the school administration and does not need to be further clarified.”
