"A student in Bryant School District in Arkansas brought home a worksheet that presented her with a scenario that referred to the Bill of Rights as “outdated” and that as part of a special committee she would need to throw out two of the Amendments.

The worksheet was handed out to Sixth grade students in a History class. According to the girl’s mother, Lela Spears, she has not received any government or civics classes and this was the first assignment dealing with the Constitution or Bill of Rights. The school district is participating in the embattled Common Core curriculum."

Sounds like a great way to encourage the students to think about the value of each individual amendment.

Imagine...teachers asking their charges to engage in critical analysis and independent thought. What's next...spelling tests in schools?

You obviously missed this:

"According to the girl’s mother, Lela Spears, she has not received any government or civics classes and this was the first assignment dealing with the Constitution or Bill of Rights."

And the Bill of Rights will never be outdated.

Never mind...I see that the assignment only dealt with the Bill of Rights and not the rest of the amendments.
