• Alton,
    I am not into revisionism but I believe that the proper history should be taught. With that being said, there is not country like America. I had a chance to travel all over the world and I seen the good and the bad of all of them countries. What made us what we are is the fact that we can work together for a common objective but still be individuals to pursuit our own goals. This is not about a school board but actually what happens after school at the house. Our schools are not going to teach our kids to think but rather to answer the next evaluation test. It is up to us to sit with our kids or mentor the next generation to think, to come up with a solution to the problem. Either we sit on the side and let it happen what is coming, whatever that happens to be or we get in the game and do something to affect it.

  • And a very good place to start would be with the textbooks used in our public schools. It was only after a very vocal protest to the State Board of Education that American Exceptionalism was returned to its proper place in the history books used by our schools. That this defeat of the blame-America-first crowd required a very vocal protest says volumes about the mindset that seems to be prevalent on the Board of Education.
