During the monthslong revision process, conservatives strengthened requirements on teaching the Judeo-Christian influences of the nation's Founding Fathers and required that the U.S. government be referred to as a "constitutional republic," rather than "democratic." Students will be required to study the decline in the value of the U.S. dollar, including the abandonment of the gold standard.
They also rejected language to modernize the classification of historic periods to B.C.E. and C.E. from the traditional B.C. and A.D., and agreed to replace Thomas Jefferson as an example of an influential political philosopher in a world history class. They also required students to evaluate efforts by global organizations such as the United Nations to undermine U.S. sovereignty.
The outright hypocrisy in all of this is that the conservatives who bitch and complain that liberal teachers/activists who are brainwashing our kids are brainwashing our kids to fit their romanticized, grossly uninformed view of American history!
Gov. Rick Perry, if you want to sesede from the Union, please do it! And take Arizona and their "papers please" racist immagration law with you.
