Omigod, here it is. Too much proof of the re-writing of history textbooks by progressives. Even one example of a principal telling parents we can't teach anything other than what is in the book. That had to do with 30 pages about the Pilgrims with not one word about religion although one poor little kid came home and told his mother that the Pilgrims gave thanks to the Indians on Thanksgiving day.

Mercy me, one text book had more about Marilyn Monroe than about George Washington. If you don't think this re-write has been going on read this link.

I had my children bring home their books, I checked them and noted the lies, then found the truth in some histories I have here! Printed in 1898 and 1901, Before leftist revision! But the best one was the text on "Black History" he had to sneak it home because it was forbidden to parents! (I think the teacher really wanted us to read it). Fantastic fiction, not even close to the truth! I now have a "college level" "black history book" it's in cartoons! Sort of like Uncle Toms Cabin! Is that the only way they can get them to read it?

I would say that that may be the only way to get college kids to read something like that.

I was a history teacher from the end of the 1950s to 1986 and I tried and tried to find a new American History text and never did and I am sure they are much worse these days. I believe I will go to my local high school and get a book and see what they are teaching here now.

My youngest son got out of high school in 2004 and I had kept up on that subject till then but from what my wife told me finally drove her out of the school I am sure I am not going to like what I learn.

Unless and until we put a stop to this crap, it is going to overflow into the universe. Cannot everyone see that we are being blitzed with all the evil the left has at its disposal, and it is becoming harder and harder to keep an eye on every evil these maggots come up with. Trust me, the political left, ALL COLLECTIVISTS, are like fleas - they are an infestation that does no good but all sorts of harm. And they are hard to get rid of. No one wants a flea infestation. New elections are not the solution. Writing letters and articles are not the solution. What do we do with physically dangerous people? We lock them away because they endanger society. So what is the politically left doing to society - they are destroying it, and I call that an endangerment of the first order. So why are we tolerating it?

My now ex is a school teacher, ultra liberal, she believes everything the left puts out, and refuses to even listen to any evidence. I have a good friend retired from schools in Ill. his retirement pay is over $140,000. And ALL of his healthcare is paid! He said starting pay is $80,000, Now we know why the cities are going broke! Another friend closed his restaurant and got a job teaching school, he is too conservative, he couldn't teach the lies required, he also went back to college to take 2 courses on education....pure bullsh... He had a doctorate. Now that we have found out the truth of C Scope, and Common Core, we know why the schools won't let the parents know what is being "Taught" and they probably won't let you see the texts used now! Let alone the propaganda the Gay Radicals are allowed to PROMOTE! And to be fair, they are now allowing the Muslims to promote their corruption. More of my friends are homeschooling!

I was certain within 5 years of the time I was thrown out of my school by libs that I couldn't have survived long because I would just not teach the crap they wanted me to teach. I studied my history between 1950 and 1975 and just couldn't handle the reconstructed stories being told.

I looked and looked for a new American History text book for years. About 1980, I got serious and had about every new book published that year. One of the worst that was supposed to be a basic text consisted of letters from various periods and nothing but pure left leaning crap. I wonder how many high schoolers were dumbed down by that book back then.
