Users of the social medium Twitter made light of news this week that conservative school board members in one Colorado district are attempting to censor a federally mandated AP history course.


Teachers and students walked out of Jefferson County schools in protest of the revised curriculum and of a proposed restructuring of how teachers are paid.

On Twitter, users coined the hashtag #JeffCoSchoolBoardHistory to riff on the nationalist, free-market-worshipping course in American exceptionalism that the conservative school board members want taught instead.

Lynn Bartels of the Denver Post linked to several tweets, including:

The Denver blog WestWord posted 30 of what it considered to be the funniest tweets.
