So what do you think of this being used in schools?

 

TCM sells ‘The Promise of America’ to thousands of school districts all across the country as well as over 100 countries around the world. Several phone calls to TCM, its‘ printing company Shell Education and New York City sales outlet Sussman Sales provided little specific data on just how many schools are currently using the ’Promise of America, ‘ but one company rep told The Blaze the “Fluency program is really really popular.”

Not questioning the article, I linked it though. 

 I am more intrested in knowing would you have a problem if your child brought this home from school?

  • my kids bring home alot of crap from the school.
    I just have a learning session at home,and they are encouraged to inform the teachers of the same when they go back. My kids spend alot of time in the principals office for speaking out against teachers. In fact, we have teachers that have refused to have my son in class because he continually corrects them when they are wrong and providing misinformation. He has yet to be incorrect.

  • I agree garbage especially the housing and transportation is met by the government.

    They are teaching this so that kids believe that the government is their to help them. That is how you control that masses and get them to do you what you want them to and what you want them to believe.
