Sorry Day - Coming to School Near You?

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.

This week in Congress they are working on the Native Hawaiian Government act. Like American Indians, the Native Hawaiians will have their own government. What land will they be given?

And will we have an "I'm sorry" day in US schools for them?

Indoctrination has already hit our schools. Remember the videos of kids singing praises to Der Commissar?

School history lessons, or the lack thereof, is a pet peeve of mine. I will continue to blog about it.

I love this piece. We must expose what the schools are doing. And the piccy of the dog is classic!
