    Private Christian schools have an agenda too. The best place to get a real education is a university where scholars and PHDS dedicate their entire career to the subject.

I think government-run education is dangerous.

    It's sad I have to use the ****ing word "alternative" to describe patriotism....

    That's how ****ed this country is tho...
    No, its your guys who are objecting to teaching about things like slavery or genocide of Native Americans in a "negative light," as if it's some horrifying thing to admit that America has a seriously ****ed up past.

    But apparently that's unpatriotic, and we must punish anyone who isn't patriotic!

    I don't object to anything - it seems you just want your democrat based slavery to be the emphasis of curriculum.

    Actually, I don't believe anybody has said that we shouldn't teach about slavery or genocide of Native Americans, but they CLEARLY have said that those are NOT the only things that should be taught, nor should they be the sole focus of a US History class.

    Actually, that's false ... but that's okay. Clearly, facts aren't real important to you.
