Native Americans were wiping each other out long before Columbus---and that was over the entire landmass of the Americas.

    The real history of America leaves out all the ugly details of fighting and genocide---unless it was White-on-Them.

    I support a real and honest coverage of all people in history---all held to the very same standards as Whitey.
    Gee, because reservations are just lovely places to be in with all that alcohol abuse, sex abuse, and poverty and ****ty land and what-not! We were so nice to them!

    No one said the Native Americans were saints, that still ain't an excuse for what happened to them all after the Europeans came here.

    I'm with the students on this one. Complete bs on the part of that school board. No curriculum should be biased or censored, just straight facts.

    Respectfully disagree......There are other ways to do this......Kids should go back to class.

    Wow... I guess an honest conversation is now out the window.

    What it says is pretty clear, and I have already explained it in simple, plain English.

    I have already posted a quote from the school board member who objects to the teaching of slavery

    It is either naive or dishonest to claim there isn't a political agenda at work here.

    It would downplay or ignore the entire civil rights movement and suffragette movement...and the fact that they succeeded (mostly).

    Really? What? Now they have national attention and the school board is forced to explain and justify their ideas. And it's peaceful.

    The kids are learning plenty during this.

    I don't blame them though. Their parents are probably even more self absorbed idiots, so it isn't like the kids had a chance.
    The teachers are objecting too.

    Please don't disrespect the Natives---I'm 1/32nd Native myself.

    No many of the Native Reservations are not Disneyland, but even those who gorge themselves on KFC chicken are living much longer than they did back before 500 years ago. As most died by age 30. An extremely hard life for anyone.

    But I hold Native Americans to same moral standards as the Mongols, the Shoguns, the Vikings and everyone else.

    That is a lie...

    This is what the resolution actually says:

    Review criteria shall include the following: instructional materials should present the most current factual information accurately and objectively. Theories should be distinguished from fact. Materials should promote citizenship, patriotism, essentials and benefits of the free enterprise system, respect for authority and respect for individual rights. Materials should not encourage or condone civil disorder, social strife or disregard of the law. Instructional materials should present positive aspects of the United States and its heritage. Content pertaining to political and social movements in history should present balanced and factual treatment of the positions.
    What exactly do you find objectionable about that?

    This nation's foundation wasn't "built on civil protests". What do you consider to be the foundation of this nation?
