    The history curriculum is already so packed that it is impossible to get everything in within 180 days... it simply can't be done... and before I moved to Taiwan, I taught history in public schools...

    The HISTORY of religion in Europe most certainly IS taught and really MUST be taught if you want to understand European history...

    Perhaps you're referring to Clinton's Don't Ask Don't Tell policy that relegated national defense to a position secondary to that of social engineering.

    Or are you just referring to Joe Namath's panty-hose commercials?

    Let it be one of those lame college electives they can choose to learn about if they so choose but stop trying to push your gay acceptance into the school curriculum.

    Don't be silly and igorant.

    Julius Caesar is important because, among other things, he's an example of how repulbics are destroyed from within, by the decay democracy inevitably produces in society that enables strong men to seize power and alter to political form permanently. Among other things, Caesar was a political manipulator expert at the use of street agitation to instill fear and instability in the extant order that enabled him to manipulate the system to his advantage.

    A look at the mindless goonion mobs in Wisconsin last month illustrates the necessity of understanding how unamerican influences can use street agitation to promote the fall of the Republic.

    Similar lessons are learned from the fall of the Bourbon kings, the fall of the Romanovs, and the fall of the Weimar Repubic, and it was also taken advantage of in the earliest days of the American Revolution, ie, the Boston Massacre.

    Another thing to be learned from Ancient Rome is that buying public loyalty with bread and circuses serves the politicians handing out the loaves, and serves the nation with death. Again, today's welfare state is killing the Republic, and with it individual freedom.

    History, REAL history, is important. The Mayor never learned real history in public schools, that was something he had to learn on his own. The American student today isn't being taught real history, either. They're being prepared to be dutiful robots of the coming Paradise of the Proletariat by a diet of myth and propaganda in the public schools.

    We are not given the chance to teach "real history" because the curriculum is so jammed packed that you can't even give cursory coverage in 180 days much less provide any depth that would actually allow students to UNDERSTAND what they are studying...

    Only in the eyes of a "conservative" does MORE education = "half retards that can't read a full paragraph".

    No wonder conservatives are always fighting to keep people uneducated.

    gays are a part of human society from the start of civilization, did it really take this long for them to be recognized as normal equals?
