Does Prentice Hall ring a bell? Depending on when you went to school you may have had a few Prentice Hall textbooks. I know I did. One of their current textbooks, simply titled World History, is causing quite the stir in Florida. (Florida Today) reports:
Two Brevard School Board members are reviewing a world history textbook used in ninth grade Advance Placement classes amid concerns that it is biased in favor of Islam at the expense of Christianity and Judaism.
House Representative Ritch Workman and individuals from two citizens groups spoke against the textbook, Prentice Hall World History, at the Brevard School Board meeting Tuesday, citing examples of phrases and passages they believe show bias.

If you aren’t home-schooling or sending your kids to a private Christian school, you are guilty of child abuse.
Looks like Islam is winning its war against civilization.
here in Texas at least one district must be using the same textbooks
A 6th grader brought home his workbook after studying the chapter on religions from the middle East
What archaic book do Christians worship?
What holy book do Muslims use to guide their lives?
This is the school district where the Holyland Foundation is headquartered. Richardson Tx
on Noes NO coincidence
No matter what the subject is, whether its math, English, science or world history, students need to have accurate, unbiased information, Kneessy said. If textbooks are unbiased or incomplete, its our job to fix that.
Yup, we wouldn't want any "unbiased" textbooks out there. Either this is a Freudian slip, he's an idiot, or he thinks the readers are idiots. Could be all three!
Look. There is enough information out there to show that sending your kids to a government school is not at all in their best interests. If you have the means to do otherwise yet still make the choice to send your kids to government school, then you’re either irredeemably stupid or complicit.
“None” is the correct answer to both questions, right?
Textbooks are no good. Teach from original sources.
Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record—Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963
#17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
Having home educated two girls who are now outstanding scholars, I beg to differ. You are correct when it comes to literature or even history. When it comes to math and science, textbooks come in quite handy when it comes to supplementing real world problem solving. The texts add a degree of rigor.
Floridians should be outraged that they have some of the worst public schools in the United States, with even the few classy towns having to have Holder’s people bussed in.
I agree! It also makes a lot of sense. My husband and I have struggled to keep our child in a private Christian school. In return, he has a full scholarship to a major University. Awesome return for our investment.
I’d love to. Believe me.
Too long for a license plate, a bumper sticker, or a tagline...but I concur!
Arabic is the ONLY cursive allowed in Floriduh.
One of the goals of the radical left is to eliminate Christianity and Judaism. They think that they can enlist the death cult to help them. Problem is the death cult is much worse, and will target the radical godless left first.
I read through the link and didn’t see the offending material. Did I miss it? If it’s not there, does anyone have a link to it?
Are they going to teach the sanitized version of the Religion of Peace, or the one where women are dirty whores who must be covered and hidden away, and homosexuals should be stoned?
Obama did say the US was an Islamic Nation
“None is the correct answer to both questions, right?
NICELY done and of course correct
“He who controls the present , controls the past
He who controls the past, controls the future”
This goes both ways too. It's obvious that those who are in control are re writing history and using it to indoctrinate America's children to pave the way for their control of the future.
You can find out who is in control by looking closely at how they are revising history to fit a desired future.
I think they will target the left after they have killed off the Jews and Christians. They can use the left to do their dirty work, sort of like the kapos.
The same goes for universities. So many parents send their kids to good Christian high schools, only to find they lose their way in State universities. At least you have some influence over your kids in high school.
I have 3 kids. The oldest went all the way through public school until graduation. Then he went to a small Christian University, which was, in retrospect, well worth every cent. Upon graduation he had to turn down 3 job offers. He is in ministry.
My youngest went through Christian HS and is headed for a great conservative Christian college, Grove City. My middle child, who marches to his own beat, graduated from Christian HS, took college for a year and joined the Marines. He has thanked me for his “unique” upbringing on several occasions. He says it really sets him apart as a Marine because he has solid standards.
Personally, I have made a decision. I WILL NOT have a government collectivist school teacher for a friend. They are too evil, too stupid, or too much of a Useful Idiot to be a friend. ( I don't have abortion workers for friends, either.)
Given the shift in cost/benefits of a college education, you’d be better advised these days to have your kids learn a valuable trade.
That is not a bad idea!
It is evil to force children into socialist-entitlement and single-payer indoctrination centers ( misnamed “schools”). In these prison-like centers they risk learning that any voting mob powerful enough to give them tuition-free schooling is powerful enough to give them **LOTS** of “free” socialist goodies. It is EVIL to force citizens to pay for this monster.
Government schools exist because teachers **willingly** choose to open the doors to these temples of socialist and godless evil. The same is true for abortion centers. One institution aborts little bodies. They other strives to abort the heart, minds, and souls of children ( and the nation). It take workers to make both run. Personally, I don't want people of either group in my life. I shun them.
Rather than explain why socialist-entitment and single-payer government schooling is NOT evil, not godless, not an evil socialist influence on the children, and the teachers NOT creating this, you personally insult me.
