Of course, they will also be told that global warming, or climate change is a theory, which it is, and urged to explore it themselves, in other words, to think. That has the Left outraged! School is not for thinking, or encouraging kids to evaluate anything. I mean you teach kids to think and the next thing you know, they are doing crazy things. Like thinking before voting.
Students in Nebraska are getting new standards for social studies curriculum, after weeks of intense debate. The state Board of Education reached agreement on two items of controversy this week: whether to include “American exceptionalism” and how to teach about climate change, the Lincoln Journal Star reports.
The fight had been over whether to explicitly teach the idea of American exceptionalism, as one board member proposed, and whether to include information about climate change, which the current standards do not mention. The board approved the standards after making some changes:
The words “American exceptionalism” do not appear in the final draft, but the concept does. In the sixth- through eighth-grade U.S. history standards, one of the “indicators” — examples of what to teach — is the “unique nature of the creation and organization of the American Government, the United States as an exceptional nation based upon personal freedom, the inherent nature of citizens’ rights and democratic ideals.”
This is what the Left hates apparently examples of what to teach — is the “unique nature of the creation and organization of the American Government, the United States as an exceptional nation based upon personal freedom, the inherent nature of citizens’ rights and democratic ideals.”
In other words they are going to teach about the founding, the government, the, GASP, constitution, and that there is, brace yourself, liberty in America! Come on man! The Left is trying to turn out good little brain dead Marxists, and Nebraska schools might get in the way of that! Oh, but it gets worse for the Left.
Likewise, climate change appears in the sixth- through eighth-grade geography standards, but is presented as a theory, not as fact, asking students to evaluate “recent global climate change theories, and evidence that supports and refutes such theories.”
What? You cannot tell these kids that a theory is a theory! And instructing them to evaluate evidence on BOTH sides of the debate? OUTRAGEOUS! How dare Nebraska encourage open mindedness. I mean the Left has been trying to
educate indoctrinate our kids for decades now. Stories like this scare them. Just peruse the comments at the link, the stupidity and hate will stun you
