We have previously mentioned the re-write of the AP guide for History. The new AP guide for teaching History is nothing less than (yet another) declaration of war against the very essence of America.
Elizabeth Price Foley over at Instapundit has termed the MiniTru approved truth as the oppression narrative. An apt label for an education system that tears down American civilization as an evil and replaces it with a Howard Zinnified version of reality. As Foley notes:
How about just teaching our children about the founding, the Constitution, and the major historical eras? It isnt a cultural anthropology or a race/gender relations class [T]he emphasis on oppression and mini-nationalism groups will breed hatred and bigotry, rather than unify a diverse country.
