Public School Battle Map

from NCPA,

Researchers at the Cato Institute have developed an interactive map that allows users to explore the conflicts taking place across U.S. public schools.

Be they curriculum battles (such as religious or sex education), conflicts over race and ethnicity within school systems (including school mascots), or freedom of expression controversies (freedom of speech versus school authority, for example), this interactive website maps the locations of education conflicts across the country.

– In all, there are nine types of “battles” identified by the map.

– In addition to those mentioned above, the map looks at conflicts over gender equity, human origins, moral values and reading material.

Users can search by conflict type, state, year or keyword to find specific incidents, or simply zoom in on the map.
