SCH CD-IRISH FAMINE STUDY
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the School Code. Requires all public schools to include
in their curricula a unit of instruction on the period in world
history known as the Irish Famine. Authorizes the State
Superintendent of Education to develop and make guideline
instructional materials available to school districts. Provides that
each school board itself determines the minimum amount of instruction
time that qualifies as a unit of instruction. Effective July 1, 1997.
FISCAL NOTE (State Board of Ed.)
Cost to districts for purchasing materials is difficult to
calculate. Cost to SBE for development of materials would total
HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Authorizes (rather than requires) public schools to
offer a unit of instruction on the Irish Famine.
