I have ranted many times on the problem of stupidity being taught to our children…instead to teaching the need for civics and history they instead want to pass on BS and misinformation to our children.
These two examples illustrate the stupidity that is being considered as part of the educational curriculum….
First from the great state of Louisiana……
A hearing erupted in laughter when one Republican legislator was compelled to tell another that “There’s no ‘good’ to slavery, though.”
The Louisiana House Education Committee held a hearing on HB 564 on Thursday, during which the bill’s author and committee chairman State Rep. Ray Garofalo was grilled by fellow Republican Rep. Stephanie Hilferty on the bill’s prohibition on “divisive concepts” in education.
Hilferty began by grilling Garofalo about the sources of complaints that led him to author the bill.
“Can you give examples of what they told you?” Hilferty asked.
Garofalo described teachers and parents complaining about “handouts” that they’d been given.
“Like what does the handout say?” Hilferty asked.
“Handouts saying the United States is a racist country, that corporations are inherently racist, and have a bias against…” Garofalo began, as Hilferty interrupted to ask “Can you share examples of these with the committee?”
WATCH: Hearing Erupts in Laughter When GOP Legislator Confronted for Suggesting Schools Teach ‘Good’ Side of Slavery
The ‘Good’ side of slavery?
The term indicts that there is and was NOTHING good about slavery.
Next stupidity comes from the great state of Idaho….a bill that would prohibit the teaching of racism….
A bill that would ban teaching critical race theory and other similar teachings in schools in Idaho is awaiting Gov. Brad Little’s signature.
The bill, HB 377, passed in the state’s senate on Monday after passing through the house last week. It would prohibit public schools from teaching that “any sex, race, ethnicity, religion, color, or national origin is inherently superior or inferior,” which it says can be found in critical race theory.
The bill also bans teachings that argue that people should be treated differently based on things like race or gender and that people are not responsible for past actions committed by people who share their same demographics.
Red states just keep pushing the culture war crap down the throats of idiots that voted for them.
Personally I believe that there should be a national standard for the teaching of history and civics.
Why is this?
Textbooks help skew history to the absurd.
Once again the problem is in the education of our children.
