Ayn Rand

The Christian Science Monitor reported that Idaho State Sen. John Goedde (R), Senate Education Committee Chairman, introduced legislation that would require every Idaho high school student to read Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged,” and pass a test on it to graduate. When asked why that particular book? “That book made my son a Republican,” he said. Goedde said he doesn’t plan on actually pursuing the legislation, he introduced it to make a point, to let his fellow committee members know that there’s another way to adopt high school graduation requirements. (Note: books are now a potent weapon in state education politics.)
