WIlmington, NC — Since 1995, teaching the history of the Holocaust to middle school students – and teaching other teachers that curriculum – has become Angela Eichhorn Perry’s personal passion. The Penderlea Elementary School media specialist didn’t have ancestors who died in the Holocaust. Instead, a professional development course on the Holocaust she took through the N.C. Center for the Advancement of Teaching 16 years ago sparked the fire in her to dig deeper. That course and the center’s other areas of instruction for teachers, however, are now being threatened by the state’s tight finances.
