The politically correct police don't just exist in the United States. In Australia they are making updates to the school curriculum to include "Sorry Day". This is a day that will allow kindergarteners to have a day to say they are sorry to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. The Australians and the Aborigines have had struggles between the two cultures for what seems like forever. The goal of this program is to make sorry day to have the same significance as Anzac day; the Australian and New Zealand version of Memorial Day.
The public school system is getting an overhaul. Multiculturalism, indigenous rights, ethics, and wait for it, sustainable living, will be focused on from grades K-10. All of this would be fine if they were not putting in these subjects in front of history and math. Isn't it still important to teach our children math and history?
History teaches how we got to where we are today. Kids all over the world need to understand how people and cultures have evolved over time. What parts of history are no longer going to be taught? Do we not teach kids about WWI? Do we forget about Hitler and Stalin? Or do we just forget about The Roman Empire? If we don't understand history we are doomed to repeat it. Isn't that how the saying goes? How many years do you think it will take for this to infiltrate the school systems in the United States? Political correctness has run amok.
