I am one who believes that history, actual history, as it happened is not taught in our schools. I also believe that not enough attention is given to the founding of the nation. I also believe, and have for years, that the goal of government schools is not so much education as indoctrination. Moonbattery has another example that shows me, to be correct
Liberals like the idea of a “living Constitution” — that is, a Constitution that says whatever they want it to say at the moment. Here is what the Second Amendment says:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
Here is what advocates of statist tyranny want it to say:
Horrifyingly, the falsified version above was taken from United States History: Preparing for the Advanced Placement Examination. From Amazon:
This text is designed for a one-semester or one-year United States history course for students preparing to take the AP U.S. History Exam. Teachers can assign the book as the course textbook or as a supplement to a college-level textbook.
Looking over the picture, I saw the butchering of the First Amendment too, adding the “separation of church and state” which is NOT in the Bill of Rights. God only knows how many other falsehoods are in that book.
Just another reason to either home school your kids, or to at least talk to your kids about history. As much as we tout education in America, we forget that the goal of education should be to impart knowledge, not propaganda.
