High School Shrugged

An Idaho State Senator introduced a bill to “require every Idaho high school student to read Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” and pass a test on it to graduate from high school.”

There’s a certain irony in the state forcing students to read a Rand book–that would be the exact opposite of what libertarian philosophy would strive for.

The bill is not going to be pushed further.

    Sounds like a joke bill. If he really wanted kids to read it, the bill should have prohibited “Atlas Shrugged” in school libraries.
