In honor of the Chinese New Year, Hankering for History has two entries that you definitely will want to check out!

The first answers the age-old question: What is the Chinese New Year?

Not cool lawmakers! History Bill Would Emphasize Interpretations Favored by Conservatives http://www.dnj.com/article/20140123/NEWS01/301230023/?nclick_check=1
State lawmakers are weighing a bill that would mandate how Tennessee students are taught U.S. history, with an emphasis on interpretations favored by conservatives.
