GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) - Teachers have shut down two high schools in suburban Denver amid a dispute over proposed changes to a history course and their pay.
The Jefferson County School District says classes had to be canceled at Golden and Jefferson high schools on Monday because so many teachers called in sick.
The action follows waves of student walkouts last week to protest a proposed review of the Advanced Placement history course to make sure it promotes patriotism. A sickout by teachers closed two other high schools on Sept. 19.

Larenz Tate should holla at his accountant, or just check his mail; but definitely needs to cut a check. The Love Jones actor is being sued by American Express for almost $58,000.
Larenz Tate deals in “Dead Presidents” onscreen, but offscreen he has nothing to do with them … which is why American Express is suing him.
The “Menace II Society” star racked up more than $57K on his AMEX card but didn’t pay a Native
American cent … according to court docs obtained by TMZ.
AMEX claims in its lawsuit it’s sent several demands for payment — but got radio silence from the famous debtor.
AMEX wants $57,912.85.
We gotta hear both sides.

Chris Brown is allegedly trying to get his life in order, but the whole gang affiliation things isn’t sitting too well with his mother. Allegedly, Breezy’s mother, and girlfriend Karreuche Tran, have asked a therapist to intervene.
Multiple sources tell us … Chris’ mom and Karrueche are so worried … they approached the therapist because they’re deeply concerned Chris is not only compromising his safety by promoting gangs, he’s also ruining his career.
TMZ broke the story … the LAPD has already gone to L.A. clubs, trying to convince owners to ban
Chris and his entourage because wherever they go … violence follows.
Chris’ family thinks he does not understand the implications of associating himself with the Bloods. He thinks it’s “cool,” but the family is worried he’s in real danger and he doesn’t have a clue.
We’re told they literally think Chris’ life is on the line.
Reportedly Bloods have gone on record to say Brown’s faux-Blood membership is cool. However, we doubt the R&B crooner will be involved in any drive bys. Expect the hand signs to stop as soon as they affect his money, though.
