True or False

 

School textbooks have all but disappeared in the average classroom. They are still there, yes. But the words and ideas printed in them are ones that would never have even appeared "back in the day". 

"Back in the day" was in the 1980s when my own children were in school. The book below was one that was in Dad's day in high school.




What is being passed is progressive education is darn scary.  What can or should be done?  Be a voice, go to a school board meeting, connect with organizations that fight the current words that our children hear.


The under current of what-is-right-what-is-wrong is up for grabs. But of all these lies, the future of our children is at terrible risk. You can change it, be a strong voice to those in charge.

Read this or things like this:  






Be bold, speak out. This is not a red state/blue state, conservative/progressive, riots/BLM....This is a case of saving our kids from the influences that will drastically divide the country.

  2. I don't recall ever being taught about politics or how government works. There was a brief lesson or two (possibly more) on Federal and State government and about the Upper and Lower houses and what they were for. Maybe more was taught in the later high school years and I had left school after year 9.
    I do think they should focus more on the basics and have children leave elementary school able to read, spell and do at least basic math, then of course the STEM subjects are so important too. here there is talk of including art and turning STEM into STEAM.

    1. Public schools have really sliced down curriculum, while promoting politics.

  3. Sorry to be so late visiting. On Friday, I was without power for over 16 hours. I am hugging my AC about now after suffering 100 F heat for a full day!

    I remember having civics in High School. That's where we learned about our three separate forms of govt: president, congress, and supreme court. However, I have never heard of CRT until just now. I am with you on the fact this is not a red state/blue state, etc. problem, but something we must tackle if we want our country to survive.

    1. We know the missing A/C days.
      We had American and World history, as well as parts of forms of government. Public schools now are lean on that part of learning.

  4. We studied our government as well as other forms of government. We were required to know who our president, vice-president, all cabinet members, congressional leaders, senators and representatives of our state, and corresponding state officials. We knew the officials in our towns often personally. Because we knew the various forms of government we could decide what type of government we wished to support. Voting was part of our education. We voted on our own school governments. When political elections were held we voted in school to see if our results were the same as the real election. We knew there were two main political parties. Each one consisted of liberal, centrist, and ultra-conservative. This was all taught along with math, science, English, history, geography, art, music, and physical education. And we had extra-curricular activities as well. Why do they insist on complicating it? Just teach. The rest will take care of itself.

  5. The world all over is rapidly disappearing down the gurgler, unfortunately! Sadly, I don't think anything is going to change any time soon.

    Take good care.
