@jchristensen, Wow! The trifecta, racist, crazy and missing the point, all in one post, yet you managed to continue on the education theme so we know you understand words and sentences. An amazing mix.

...then we can learn how the Indians frequently
attacked each other and warred between tribes, and how
that same type of tribalism still exists in Africa
today causing untold amounts of human suffering…and
then we learn how some in our society like to pretend
nothing bad would have ever happened on earth if it
weren’t for the Christians.

Speaking of lies, damn lies and prevarications: When my husband taught in public school fifth grade, the standard geo-social-political science project was the California Missions. The treatment of the California Native history was not exactly fair and balanced. When he began to speak truth to power, the principal first asked him where he got that information, and later asked him to “tone it down.” He refused, and for a while we were on thin ice. But fortunately, my husband was a very good teacher, and the principal saw the light.
In those days, results of such encounters were totally unpredictable. It all depended upon which way the local political wind was blowing at the moment. Untenured teachers were at the mercy of the slightest breeze—- as of today.
