Media Literacy Act passes State House and goes to State Senate – CBS Denver
DENVER (CBS4)– A bill to help school children spot fake news from credible media was tabled at the state capitol on Monday. The bill instructs teachers to include media literacy in their curriculum and provides an online bank of Department of Education resources to help them.
There was a heated debate over the bill last week. The question is whether the resources put together by an external task force will teach children to distinguish fact from fiction, or teach them what is fact and what is fiction.
The bill does not require teachers to use the resource bank.
The Federal Palace passed the bill on Monday. Now it goes to the Senate.
