Who thinks this is a good idea?

I mean, honestly: North Carolina Schools May Cut Chunk Out of U.S. History Lessons.

Under the proposed change, the ninth-graders would take a course called global studies, focusing in part on issues such as the environment. The 10th grade still would study civics and economics, but 11th-graders would take U.S. history only from 1877 onward.

It’s crap like this why I spend way too much money each year making sure my kids are not in a government school. There are a lot of parents out there who will say, “Well, that wouldn’t happen in *my* kid’s public school.”


Are you willing to bet your future on it? Are you willing to bet your kid’s future on it?

I’m not.

Of course, I guess once the government edu-ma-cates a new crop of people, who won’t understand the concepts behind the American revolution (Liberty!! Freedom!!), who won’t understand that the Second Amendment is not about hunting, and that the First Amendment applies to everyone equally, that the job of ruling a proletarian populace becomes much, mcuh simpler. And the chances of a revolution are almost nil.
