Get on your horse and warn Texans:  The Idiots are coming to get your good schoolbooks:

  2. As a Social Studies teacher this scares me greatly. It is true that history can be biased from the left; however, this is mere propaganda from the right. As both a Social Studies teacher and a dedicated Christian, this deeply troubles me. Keep up the good posts.

    and what revisionism has the left engaged in little one?

    And as for morality and intellectualism, Hattip, compared to me you are morally depraved and compared to me you are the dumbest person on the planet.

    Don’t play games you can’t win.

    I don’t think that teaching that Cesar Chavez was not important is a good thing to do. I don’t think it’s wise to exclude Einstein from the curriculum because he was born a Jew, nor for any other reason. I don’t think it’s wise to teach that the founders were fundamentalist Christians, when they were not.

    It’s pure folly to tell teachers not to teach that our economic system is “capitalism.” No, it’s worse than folly. It’s treachery.

    You’re right, our kids suffer from the assaults on their minds. Your defense of that assault is shameful.

    (Did you even bother to read the changes they’ve proposed?)

    You are a posterboy for everything that is wrong with American education. It is you and your kind that corrupts the educational system of this nation with “progressive” idiocy; it is not decent Americans who corrupt it.

    But you are so far gone morally and intellectually that you have inverted all values and all morality.

    You teach a false history, a false “science” (as if there was such a thing as “political science“) and a false morality, yet you slander those who would see the truth taught.

    Our nation suffers grievously from this assault n young minds. You should be ashamed of yourself.
