North Dakota students may or may not learn about the first 100 years of America’s history.

Important topics like the Declaration of Independence, the Revolutionary War and the framing of the U.S. Constitution may simply be ignored by teachers under new history standards approved by the state’s board of education last Monday, the Argus Leader reports.

Current standards do not allow history teachers to delve into topics before the Civil War, so the new standards open up the door but don’t require teachers to cover early American history, as many would have preferred. The recently adopted history standards are set to take effect in 2016-17 school year and whittle the current standards from 117 pages to 44.

This is a great example of how to break down a society.  Limit the common history and re-write and define new agenda every 20 years or so.

Memorizing names, lists and dates is not history.  If that argument will be used, how about counter it with a more detailed telling of the social envirnments of the day? Who were the individuals behind the names?  As people, what did they believe in?  Who did they love?  Who did they hate?  What were the philosophical practices of the day?  All of that and more...

Those lists of dates tell a much deeper story than just basic modern interpretations of what we think those people of the past were thinking.

More must be said. Said again and again and again.  Extortion was used by Obama to get the states to implement CC. He told the states that if they didn't agree to accept CC they would not get billions of $ for education.

NY state was the first to implement CC their test scores are miserable, and more and more parents are opting out of testing. I believe the opt out choice has gone up 20% in the last year in NY.

Using money and influence to change behaviors.  Ding, ding, ding little doggies!  Salivate for nothing.
