Before you read it, I must warn you that the article itself definitely leans to the left. lol. But the information in it should be shocking to people of either party. Where do we get off hiding our nation's history and only including what we want in classes that are mandatory for our children to attend???
I don't want my child's history book to be written in conservative candy coating or liberal word vomit but this is crossing the line and seems to be the complete opposite of everything conservatives stand for?
This is the opposite of patriotism.
I am not defending the books as they are written now. They certainly do not provide our children with the info they need or with the truth. This is too much!

If "leaning to the right" makes history TRUTHFUL, then I'm all for it!!!
Yeah I bet you are.This is ridiculous , leaving out Latino heritage talking about country music. Leaning to the right makes it the opposite of truth! Leaning to the right makes it bigoted, racist and narrow minded!

Last time I checked every history book has different things in it. They hide A LOT> If you want your kids to know real history then learn it and teach it to them. I can tell you that a lot of what I learned at different schools completely contradicted other history books. This is nothing new. There are also things in history that EVERYONE tries to cover up and change to make it fit the way they think it should.
