 I think it is a scary scary thing that more people are not waking up to what is really happening here in our country. History is about to repeat itself & it seams like very few people care!

It really is kind of scary. To repeat the past's negatives is not on my list of do'ables.

 Yeah, I don't ever want to experience any of history's mistakes first hand!

Our social studies is common core & has the Bill of Rights, Constitution, etc. this sounds like one school district getting out of hand.

Plus I'd have to check to see how true or distorted this is. The website swings heavily to the right, and I like to keep things in the middle.

Maybe. But my understanding is that it came directly from the Common Core directive's of instructions.
