    Do you seriously have no idea what the woman was talking about?

    With U.B. Philips and gang, you can. Of course, you would be legitimately laughed out of the room quoting the guy with a ton of respect.

    Did we hear this kind of outrage from righties when the Texas history books were rewritten to bring in Jefferson Davis and leave out Thomas Jefferson

    That's exactly the point .... there was NO attempt to censor what was being taught, but rather to place the criteria in what the school board thought was 'proper context.'

    For example, the History course at Aurora High had devolved into a discussion of all the ills of the American system. It was an anti-capitalism, anti-government presentation. NO time was spent discussing the accomplishments of the founding fathers, but over 3 weeks were spent discussing the civil rights movement of the 60s. Logic would tell you that understanding the tenets of the American government that allowed the civil rights movement would be at least as important. There was a large part of the school year discussing the impacts of the industrial revolution on climate change, but not one word about the positive impacts ... better wages, better working hours, greater mobility, etc., etc., etc. The lopsided presentation of Civil War history was nothing short of ridiculous. Whether we like to admit it or not, the bombing of Hiroshima was a significantly more positive act than it was negative.

    The simple fact was that the American History effort had become a liberal forum for indoctrinating the students about everything that is wrong with the American system, rather than a reasoned, rational, and fair presentation for the students to consider for themselves. This proposal was an attempt to rein in an educational department that had gone off the tracks, rather than confront the teachers face-to-face.

    How do I know? I am a member of the District Accountability Committee here in Colorado Springs for one of the school districts. We are trying to resolve the Common Core-Instructor Responsibility conundrum. We were briefed on the Aurora situation, since that is really the driver behind this whole fiasco. Frankly, I have no idea if it's been published anywhere.
    We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone.

    Yes, an objection to HOW the topic of slavery was taught, not an objection to teaching the subject itself.

    I'm not familiar with the name but I'm going to guess he agrees with that guy from that hillbilly's duckhunting show

    Eh there should be no lights, negative or positive. Simply facts, let the kids think for themselves (I'm sure 99.99% will come to the conclusion that slavery is bad).
