I have written many times about the educational system in this country and especially the crap they teach in the South…..and Georgia has proven my disgust once again….
Georgia’s state Board of Education this week became the latest government entity to take a firm stance against teaching about racism in schools, or at least against teaching anything that makes white Republicans uncomfortable. The Georgia Board of Ed adopted a resolution insisting that the USA and Georgia are definitely not racist places, while calling for limits on how public schools should be allowed to discuss and teach about racism.
The resolution itself — authored by National Review writer and professional culture warrior Stanley Kurtz, author of many serious works of scholarship like Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism — calls for supposedly colorblind educational practices that will not “indoctrinate students in social, or political, ideology or theory” or “promote one race or sex above another,” and how could anyone possibly object to that? Like, unless you apply those concepts very selectively and in bad faith, or are actively letting Stanley Kurtz decide what is “isms,” but only a cynic would suggest rightwing officials could be capable of such a thing.
Among other things (we have the full list below), the resolution says no element of public education should do terrible things like tell innocent schoolchildren thatany individual should feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress on account of his or her race or sex;
or thatwith respect to their relationship to American values, slavery and racism are anything other than deviations from, betrayals of, or failures to live up to, the authentic founding principles of the United States, which include liberty and equality
Another revisioni9st look at American history.
What are these a/holes afraid of?
They want to hide the truth in the hopes that it will go away…in doing so they feed suspicion and hate.
Pathetic and disgusting!
