    I don't have tenure. I can't tell anyone to fuck it - I have to play along like a good little cog in the progressive education machine for another year and then I can say fuck it. Unless I'm one of the teachers that gets cut this year - in which case, we may be moving to Tampa. My Step-mom says she's got an in for me in the school district. . . . .
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    The school is mostly black. He thinks that the way to be relevant to their lives is to give them lots of pointless useless crap about black people in history which usually results in reports on black celebrities and athletes.

    Oh yes - the same ol reports about the same ol characters who actual impact on US history is negligable at best. I mean seriously - how important has peanut butter been to history?

    it wasn't just peanut butter, it was the importance of crop rotation along with a lot of other stuff.



    besides what kid doesn't love peanut butter, except those that are allergic to it

    LOL. Here, the little girls write papers about Diana Ross. Most women her age in Detroit (the little girls' grandmas) despise "Diane Ross". Yet, Sojurner Truth lived in Battle Creek after she escaped from slavery and is a much more interesting historical figure, there are at least two churches in downtown Detroit that were final stops on the Underground Railroad, and numerous other truly historical african-american people and places in the area to write about.


    My whole problem with how a lot of educators teach black history is that they totally take it out of the context of american history, when it should be incorporated into the overall story. It confuses kids to take people and events out of their times and not address other things that were happening in the same era. You can't discuss the civil war without discussing the industrial revolution, for example. The north's win had a lot to do with their industrial development and the south's agriculturally-based economy.
