Ok sorry it took me so long to get this to ya all. Been a busy weekend (hubby weekend starts on sundays) Also, didn't end up getting to watch all of it. Kids ya know, they never let you watch a whole show uninterupted and they don't understand wait till commercials. Errr!
Pretty much it says to look at the school books that your kids are assigned. Also, it depends on what state you are in, depends on some of the subjects.
Like in Texas, children are taught that there are two Thanksgivings. One is ours and the other is Mexico's in April.
In California, 2nd graders are forced (parents can't op out) to learn about two gay penguins. They even have it where Kinder-5th are being forced to learn all about LGBT but they don't teach much on the black history.
There is censorship on what is ok to allow in forms of words and pictures. Example is you can not show a woman in the kitchen cooking or mice. These things might offened someone.
A movie that talks about how riduculas this has gotten is Bias & Senstitivty. I'll have to watch it. Personally I think its crazy that we have to have this kind of sensorship but look what is on tv and the lanugage there.
At the Muslim schools the textbooks they have wording in the textbooks that state. quote
"It is believe that Moses was given the ten commandments"
"Jesus is believed to be the son of God"
"Mohama is the" ( I got interupted and didn't get the last part but I think you can see where this is heading)
The books that were suppost to be redone. Still after review for 2008-2009 has hatried in the wording. Besides killing infedels, they are told that a person with mental illness or a boy or girl underage can be forced to marry if their father wishes it.
This is a school that is in America but is funded by Saudi Arabia.
Then we get to the College Textbooks and this was suprising to me but makes sense.
The publishers deliberty update the text books when there is no real updating every few years so you can not buy use books and have to buy new books. They hike up the prices to an unresonable high cost. Also, if you have any children in college or going to college soon. Do not do the publisher's ebooks they get you there too. They did recommend Flatworld.com as a place that makes ebooks affordable.
Also, just one sidenote on what a school in Grante Falls, wa. Where I had two nices going to school. They were taught that what really killed the Jews was a coughing illness and they down played the gas chambers. We had them watch Shindler List (sp?) And told them this is what it was really like. Showed them pics of the death camps.
