What a shock. Our elitist busybody overlords are using English lessons to indoctrinate our children with liberal crapola.
This is common core. You will comply.
It's exactly what critics of the Common Core school curriculum warned about: Partisan political statements masquerading as English lessons finding their way into elementary school classrooms.I suppose that, just like all the other things destroying our country, there is nothing we can do about it. Just roll over and play dead, it will go much easier with you that way.
Teaching materials aligned with the controversial national educational standards ask fifth-graders to edit such sentences as “(The president) makes sure the laws of the country are fair,” “The wants of an individual are less important than the well-being of the nation” and “the commands of government officials must be obeyed by all.” The sentences, which appear in worksheets published by New Jersey-based Pearson Education, are presented not only for their substance, but also to teach children how to streamline bulky writing.
Ssshhh. Just let it happen. Ssshhhhh.
