As if "LaShawn" could even spell 'history'.

I read the letter. What an embarrassment. Clearly an effort to further erase history and teach what they want the kids to learn.

If anything, the teachers unions have been miseducating kids for thirty years now.

Well....yer headline is bogus.

They don’t want to abolish history. Just temporarily suspend it.

Then they want to rewrite it.

“...ask that the Illinois State Board of Education change the history curriculum at schools statewide, and temporarily halt instruction until an alternative is decided upon.“

What a crock. Glad I teach math. And that I’m not stoopid enough to live in Illinois.

I thought it was 1+1=gov taking it to give to someone else because you have "too much", you only need 1.

They abolished Civics classes years ago. Today, they teach that politics only works through protests and riots. That's the only way they can mold future Marxists.

I'd like to see a list of what he thinks are the accomplishments of women and minorities that are being ignored.

The teaching of mathematics is also under attack as racist.

Time to ditch public schools altogether. Use the savings for vouchers so people can send their kids to the private school of their choice, or homeschool.

the amount that is paid for what is received calls the whole public education system into question for sure. you could get rid of them all, just have private schools, and if the school meets some basic accredited standard, they receive school funding based on the number of students. then competition drives higher and higher quality, because parents have a choice of where to send their children to learn - and can afford to do so.

The Chicago high school that I went to had A, B, and C group classes. You signed up for class levels based on your interests and perceived abilities.

Algebra, Geometry, Biology, Chemistry, and things like that were taught in the A group. I signed up for A group classes.

B group was general science, general math, etc. Those classes taught the basics.

The C group was for people who wanted to be career losers. You basically passed just because you showed up for the classes.

Guess which group has the largest percentage of minorities. I wouldn't call it racist. Whichever level you signed up for was voluntary.

This is just another attempt by the left to replicate China’s Cultural Revolution, here in the US. Achievements of European white people are to be replaced with tales of black achievement. I grew up in the 50’s and 60’s and I distinctly recall studying George Washington Carver, Fredrick Douglas, Booker T. Washington, Harriet Tubman, not to mention Chuck Berry and James Brown.

This is not to mention all the black athletes that were and are frequently hero’s of many white boys.

The 1619 mentality is a cancer on academic reality. It seeks to destroy the heroic personages of our Founding Fathers, our participation in keeping other nations free of despots, and to make everything seem to be about our systemic “racism”. It is a lie that seeks to be institutionalized.

Huh. The guy across the hall from me teaches civics, and US Government, he’s had holocaust survivors come and talk in class, and in Utah, you can’t graduate unless you pass a “civics test” which is actually the one they give to people that are trying to become citizens.

But I would like to see his list too.

I know. As is English.

It’s like they are trying to purge the intellectuals BEFORE the revolution. I guess without math, history or language, they can tell anyone anything, and the sheep will believe it. That’s well on it’s way already. Climate scare, “peaceful” protests, socialism, masks, minimum wage boosts....the list goes on.

Math teachers next. 2 + 2 = 5 and math is racis'.

I'm thankful I live where I do and I'll bet you are too.

Just 40 percent of California schoolchildren are proficient at math. What should be done? Seattle’s idea is to teach their students that US math education is racist, is used to oppress people of color and the disadvantaged, and has been used to exploit natural resources.
Quote:
Students will be taught how “Western Math” is used as a tool of power and oppression, and that it disenfranchises people and communities of color. They will be taught that “Western Math” limits economic opportunities for people of color. They will be taught that mathematics knowledge has been withheld from people of color.

Re-write history? That does not surprise me. Since we already heard from "scholars" that math is racist.

But wait, there's more:

Rutgers graduate English department will be de-emphasizing grammar to be more in line with BLM, etc:

https://english.rutgers.edu/news-eve...es-matter.html

So, they don't think black people should have to, or would even be able to learn proper grammar.

Science is next...

They want to tell us more about how Mozart was black and how black people created modern civilization before Arabs and White people stole it.

You can see the ultimate outcome of such nonsense...……………
Just more dumbing down......As if, they need it...…..
