A Truism of History

May 23rd, 2006 by xformed

While listening to Bill Bennet’s talk show enroute work this morning, he said this:

“You remain an alien to your culture if your history is denied.”

I believe he said that was said by someone named Kolkowski, but I might be mistaken.

It certainly rings true. Consider that fact the school boards all around the country are busy purging non-“PC” text books from use.

Consider how politicians and other public figures can stand before us in person and in the media and make blod faced lies about history, for the education system has long since ceased teaching history in favor of other subjects.

If you don’t have a clue as to what’s being talked about, then they can say anything. Thanks, NEA, for the dumbimg down of the American youth. ANd BTW, NEA members, don’t complain about the workload caused by standardized testing, which controls the flow of federal funds to you, for you willingly accepted less from the students, so as to not hurt their feelings, and now the tests are just a logical consequence of trying to hold you accountable for earning your paycheck now…
