Did you know that in South Carolina the State Education Dept. is holding meetings to hear out a group that believes that schools should drop "old" history from their agendas and lesson plans? By old history I am referring to ALL history, US and World that dates 1880 and back. This means that the Civil War, the reconstruction, the spanish american war, our fight for freedom from the brittish, the boston tea party, even the drafting of the constitution will be banned from history books. Is this group gaining majority support? NO! but it should be noticed that every year they gain more and more support! Their argument is that this will clear all the red tape of trying to teach in a politically correct manner when dealing with ancient practices and philosophies (accepted issues such as racism, slavery, religion, politics). Where did I hear this from? A principal who attended a state education seminar to make them aware of this consideration as well as new laws and proposals. People are trying to cut our very history of building this nation on the Word of God.... comments?
