Teaching Future History Professors & Bloggers



A school district in Wisconsin said they will review a high school diversity class that exposed students to radical leftist thinkers and promoted a critical race theory that alleges white people are oppressors.
 “They’re teaching white guilt,” one parent told Fox News. “They’re dividing the students. They’re saying to non-whites, ‘You have been oppressed and you’re still being oppressed.’”
“I felt it was indoctrination,” she said. “This is a radical left agenda and ideology that is now embedded in our school.”
So what's the big deal? Isn't that the common thread among Civil War and American History Professors and historians? Isn't that the common thread with a lot of history blogs? Isn't that the theme of many Progressives in government and the media? Of course it is, despite what the flat-earthers in academia claim. Some of them used to have the courage to come here and deny it, but now . . . not  so much. However, if you embrace it, you're sure to get better gigs as a "historian." 

How sad that tax dollars are spent for this type of garbage. And how sad that children are taught such divisive, agenda-driven subjects. You will not see the typical hand-wringing from educators in the blogosphere over this agenda-driven, politicized curriculum. I wonder why.
