Mitch McConnell and other Senate Republicans demand the Biden administration revoke federal grants from schools that include the 1619 project in their curriculum

Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell urged Education Secretary Miguel Cardona to encourage public schools to strip from their curricula projects that he claims promote "revisionism" of US history.

In a letter dated April 29, McConnell and 38 other Senate Republicans specifically referenced the New York Times' 1619 Project, created to mark the date Africans arrived on American ground. The project's goal to is place "the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of our national narrative."

McConnell said the 1619 Project and other programs strive to "reorient" US history "away from their intended purposes toward a politicized and divisive agenda."

President Donald Trump won’t allow California schools to incorporate a curriculum based on the controversial New York Times 1619 Project.

Trump said Sunday that the Department of Education was investigating allegations that California was incorporating the 1619 Project into its lessons. He threatened to take away federal funding if they do.

The New York Times Magazine series makes some dubious claims, including that the American Revolution was fought to preserve slavery. It claims the date of 1619, when slaves first arrived in the colonies, as America’s true founding. Historians have taken issue with its wilder claims.
