History changes daily kids are not taught facts they are taught how one person feels about that particular time in history. My husband is a History Professor and is sickened by this. His classes are full every semester kids are hungry to learn what actually happened in American History and World History. They don't care to learn a politically correct sanitized version they want to learn facts and know the ugly truth about how we got where we are. We had our scandals and did horrible things in our country we also did many great things in our country. Kids are not learning everything anymore and it is pathetic. My husband home schools our children so they are not trained in public schools to be mindless robots which is all that is being produced right now. So sad.

p>Anon 11:58 Tolerance is about showing respect to those we disagree with. History is history it can be ugly so I am not sure how changing and even lying about history teaches tolerance. Just teaches if you don't like something you force someone to change it so it does not make you feel bad that would be intolerance.
