Things like this make me go browsing the history book section of Barnes & Noble. I figure for the future education of my children I'd better stock up on REAL historical texts before they're all banned. Once that happens only the officially sanctioned versions will be allowed. I'll be teaching my kids on the sly, giving them information our school systems should but won't. This line from the article justifies my concerns;
"The AHA claims to define “ethical and professional standards” within the profession of historical studies."With nut jobs like this in charge and running the show, how long will it be before our kids have even less of a knowledge of history then now?
And what they've got now is nothing to write home about either. From talking to the War Department, her siblings and my 23 year old son I know History 101 isn't what it used to be. Seems it's very politically correct, very class conscious, very culturally diverse, hey it's a lot of things. But it isn't history as it should be. It's all being rewritten and watered down to the point where our kids have no sense of who we are as a people. No sense of why we as a nation came into existence.
And if you don't know who you are or where you come from how do you figure out where you should go?
