One Woman Battles to Restore REAL, Not Revisionist, History to the Classroom

Since the days of President Wilson and John Dewey, Progressives (née Socialists) have fought to gain control of America’s gatekeepers — academia, the media, entertainment. This struggle didn’t just begin amidst the turmoil of the 60’s with Timothy Leary’s infamous “Turn on, tune in, drop out” mindset. Certainly there were giant leaps for Progressive minds made in that decade. Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson’s “Great Society” programs began the wholescale dependence of lower income upon the government.

In the span of one decade, Progressives set the stage for subtle, but unrelenting indoctrination of subsequent generations of young people. Conjoined with LBJ’s Great Society agenda, the Left moved the public away from the Founders’ vision of faith and freedom, and toward an ever-increasing government dependency.

Now, 50 years later, academia in the United States is mostly controlled by the Progressives who have ushered in new textbooks to reaffirm their worldview. The gatekeepers keep a stranglehold on education materials, only approving those texts which reinforce the revisionist history worldview, a worldview that typically demonizes America, the Founders, the early settlers and pioneers.

But there are many in the nation who have not ceded the school room battle to The Left just yet, including Cynthia Dunbar.

Arizona is well oriented to home schooling and other school choice alternatives.  The school districts react to the competition and improve the curriculum.  Arizona is one of the (less than 10) states with legislation requiring improved civics.  I don't have the details but next year at our GOP Legislative District will have discussions on it.

Go Cynthia.  We've sat idly by allowing the progressive movement to make these changes and now it's time to truly fight back.  It's not enough for us to voice our opinions here.  Maybe we need to take to the streets as well.  I know that this is a bold step, but I think it's time to put a stop to all this craziness.  When the Tea Party first started, I went to that first public meeting in Tucson which was held in a square downtown.  I think it's time for another very public meeting.

I agree, get rid of common core!

Hopefully once Common Core is out they classroom will be back to normal teaching History, Math, maybe even some common sense.

Common Core is nothing but a tool... a symptom of a greater problem.  The greater problem is TEACHERS and ADMINISTRAORS... they have been completely compromised.  Over the past 75yrs Public Education and its Schools and Credentialing has created a bastion for Liberal and Marxist Propaganda. 

Our Institutions of higher Education have created a system that promotes and trains new teachers in doctrines of Education that promote liberal and Marxist ideology... they no longer focus on teaching or mastering skill sets required for teaching the basics... reading, writing, History, Science, and Arithmetic. They are more focused on Psychological Indoctrination and social engineering... political correctness.

Until we completely gut the present Public Education System and replace it with the traditional ... classical education... model I would suggest you take your children out of the Public Schools. Place them in a private or parochial school... or home school.  Leaving your children in the Public Schools is very dangerous... don't be surprised when they graduate and cannot successfully intergrade into society.

There are many good home schooling systems today... one is ABEKA which follows a Christian curriculum and classical system of education... using a combination of correspondence and on-line educational tools to provide a very good education for a minimal fee.  The system is fully ACCREDITED... transcripts and diplomas are awarded...  I sent my youngest daughter to ABEKA...  I highly recommend there program.

There are several good home schooling curriculums out there  - - -

Homeschool Curriculum Grades 1-12

In my own personal experience education appeared to head west, into the sunset, with a compass sporting a needle that absolutely refused to point North, even when I was a snot nosed kid in grade school.

Nearly all of history is revisionist, due to the fact that the historian can't help but take sides when there is a choice to make, and there always seems to be choices involved in human activity. History is unreliable due to the unreliability of the subject, humans.

Case in point, Abraham Lincoln. Hero, or villain.  Point and counterpoint. And even if one side is ridiculous it doesn't matter. It is taught, and it is believed. The truth becomes a choice for the student to make. Then too, is that, truth, even offered in the choices?

One can be determined to be objective but the resources used to chart that course are generally flawed.

Another example is Jesus Christ. He, along with His Father, invented mankind. Yet when Christ became man, reducing himself so that out of love He allowed Himself to be tortured and slaughtered, paying the death penalty for all of us, only slightly more than 100 people actually believed Him and what He taught.

His History was corrupted beyond recognition in just a few short years after the crucifixion.

And the same cause is at work today, in our society, in our academia, in our classrooms and books, and in the minds of many who teach our youth. It is also prevalent in our families and in our churches.

And, in our government as well. A glaring example is the fact that justice no longer seems to matter to those responsible for guaranteeing it under God, and in accordance with the Constitution.

My view. And I hope I am not misunderstood in giving  it.

I hope she suceeds

Me too.

 

Fellow American,

One of the greatest gifts God has given Americans is our freedom. Even with all the turmoil and oppression we see in the world around us, we still too often take these freedoms for granted.

In our great country, the Constitution is the document that protects it. After the Bible, it is the single most important document in the world. Most Americans think they know it well, since they learned about it in school.

But far too few Americans truly understand the Constitution and the freedoms it protects.

We've made our renowned Constitution 101 course free for all Americans to take online -- the same course that every Hillsdale student must take to graduate, regardless of their major.

Activate your personal Constitution 101 course today -- you'll get weekly lessons via email and can take quizzes to test your knowledge as you learn.

Time is Running Out


Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin agree:

“Hillsdale College is the authority on teaching the Constitution.”

In the fight to preserve our freedoms, our greatest enemy is ignorance. Become an expert on the document that secures and preserves your freedom -- the U.S. Constitution.

Start your free Constitution 101 course today.

Thank you,

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
