early education of guilt

I think we spend too much focus on american indians and slavery in gradeschool.

I realize now that I spent more time learning about harriet tubman than thomas jefferson, and that upsets me. I learned little about american government but at least I know all about wigwams

Did everyone else learn about these things as much as my school did? Why is that, did leadership on education boards go haywire with political correctness at some point or what

i think its generational, because of the fact that most of us have parents who are probably bigots they felt they had to brainwash us. i think it's a positive tactic if it is true to be honest, but I agree that it's WAY overdone. you should just learn about slavery and the trail of tears for like 2 weeks. its powerful enough that kids understand how wrong it was right away.

The nice thing is that learning isn't limited to school. Even when you're in school you can choose personal learning to scratch whatever itch you feel.

It's part of the liberal conspiracy to draw attention away from god and towards terrorist cultures such as arabs and indeans. Taxes are raised every day and the money is funneled into the mainstream media who's goal is to make our children homosexuals so they don't reproduce. When the population gets low enough the terrorists will invade and the muslim socialist order will begin.

Vote for Ron Paul.

THIS! However, if you actually DO learn the truth outside of school, and attempt to apply this knowledge IN school..... you'll likely end up in trouble. I know I did, and that was back in the '80's....
