Local officials and community leaders in Illinois called to cease history classes in state schools until new methods are developed to highlight marginalized groups.
In a Sunday news conference in Evanston, Illinois, Democratic State Representative LaShawn K. Ford said "current history teachings lead to a racist society and overlook the contributions of women and minorities," according to NBC Chicago.
I would be teaching my kids history around the dinner table. <-- Of course, I've recently read an article that insisted parents who are teaching their children above & beyond the school curriculum are guilty of white privilege. So, what about all of the Black, Native American, Asian, and Hispanic people in this country who are intelligent and care about their kids' futures? I'm pretty sure many of them are also teaching their children outside the classroom.
Our children must be taught American history!
