Socialists Don't Like Positive Aspects Of American History

"Theories should be distinguished from fact. Materials should promote citizenship, patriotism, essentials and benefits of the free enterprise system, respect for authority and respect for individual rights. Materials should not encourage or condone civil disorder, social strife or disregard of the law. Instructional materials should present positive aspects of the United States and its heritage. Content pertaining to political and social movements in history should present balanced and factual treatment of the positions."
How disgusting. Imagine, teaching "positive aspects of the United States and its heritage" and "Content pertaining to political and social movements in history should present balanced and factual treatment of the positions."

Of course, the "enemies of American Exceptionalism" don't like this either. You just can't make this stuff up.  Birds of a feather . . .

And remember, it's not really about history when it comes to much of the education establishment in America, it's about social justice - even though many of the "enemies" deny it. Uh-huh.

It's clear from the linked article the Teacher's Union is behind the so-called student protests. Once again we see the cowardly hidden hand of political and personal self-interest cynically manipulating young people.

Instead of teaching students to respect the values and traditions that made America the hope of the world - instead of teaching students to think for themselves, unionized teachers send their students out to act as human shields so the Marxist union can continue to spread it's hateful anti-American propaganda and so individual teachers can avoid the requirement to be evaluated and to demonstrate competence.

"Hundreds of Jefferson County high school students walked out of their classes this week in response to a proposal submitted by members of the Jefferson County school board seeking to revamp the county's US history curriculum...

The walkouts came on the heels of a "sick-out" involving some 50 teachers on Friday, which was planned in response to the US history curriculum proposal and to new teacher evaluation measures."

Yes, and it does appear that these "teachers" have done a great job of indoctrinating their students - in order to advance their own agenda.

Yet we see history bloggers/teachers deny this is going on. Some of them used to come here and attempt to debate me on that topic - until they were exposed as either ignorant or complicit.

As always, thanks for the comment.
