    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.
    Being that winners write the history, how can we be sure what we read in our history books is actually fact and true?
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Nowhere does she object to the teaching of the history of slavery in the United States.
    She clearly thinks slavery should be taught in a "positive light"

    They need to get the conversation started however. Which they succeeded in doing.

    Are you suggesting that the discussions will be conducted in an unintelligent manner?

    They were off-campus, but at a busy intersection "near" their school. They were given unexcused absences until or unless a parent retroactively gives permission.

    Well hopefully their parents will step up.

    You said, and I quote:

    Quote Originally Posted by sangha View Post

    Based on the links contained in this thread, and the links you have provided, that statement absolutely false.

    Either substanciate that claim, or retract it.

    Schools have given out far more severe punishment than that for absence to do protests. They just have to prove that the punishment was as a result of student conduct and not another contingency.

    The school was in the right to give an unexcused absence to these students.
