Did you see the research that showed that people who watched NO news knew more about the world than people who regularly watched Fox News??   :lol :lol :lol

You should start a book club for Fox News watchers, you can talk about that "hard read" Ayn Rand.   :lol

Yes, ignore the lazy teachers who only read from the textbooks during class and don't form their own curriculum nor teach kids to find multiple opinions in order to *GASP* think for themselves.

Of course you don't.  As I always say, unless they put somebody in my room, I will teach as I choose.  But in places like Oklahoma where the idiot conservatives stuck a knife in it entirely, kids are hurt.

And when we had the controversy in Colorado earlier this year, it was a great discussion/teaching tool for kids.  Because they could think about whether the things we were discussing were accurate even if not "patriotic" enough.   :uhh

For devil's arguement sake...

For the Snakeeyes of the world who enjoy incredible freedoms but want to bash those who created and defended them,...

Whitewash history how...??

Lets talk about Slavery. Yeah it sucked.
BUT Slavery didn't build this country.  Slaves picked cotton in the south mostly for a few rich plantation owners.
Cotton picking didn't build this country. Cotton doesn't last.
Most people didn't own slaves or even dream of doing so. White Priveledge was unknown, and every person had to scrap hard to get by.

Heres a statistic you won't hear on Liberal Outlets. Since the year 2000, the United States has Legally Immigrated more people from Africa straight up. than there where Slaves in the history of this country!
Thats true, you can look it up... There really weren't that many slaves when we're talking todays population numbers.

People who emigrated from Europe in the mid-to-late 1800's and early 1900's were poor and ambitious, but there was NO WELFARE STATE to welcome them in and support them with foodstamps and welfare and medicaid.
In fact 1/3 of Immigrants returned home! No FREEBIES.

Jim Crow Laws? Democrat
Civil Rights? Passed by Republicans and opposed by Democrats.

Whitewash history??
You have got to be joking. It's people like Snakeeyes who want to Ban anything that might seem offensive now; in spite of history. Redskins as a name? Nope. Confederate Flag? Ban it. Tradiditional Religious symbols? Tear them down.
Snakeeyes and his ILK are the ones wanting to Whitewash History.. and He's dumbing down every idiot kid who steps into his classroom.
