If ever there was a case to home school, here it is. Don't take this, parents! This is blatant propaganda! It's not even appropriate reading material for fourth graders. Challenge it! Get it out of there! There are a LOT of good books. Your kids can get their politics later. THIS IS WRONG!!! We have got to draw the line!

It wasn't a required reading, it was just a book in the library.

It is a Parent's responsibility to see every paper, and every workbook, and library book the children are called upon to read. Discuss each paper, and book if it is something you don't believe you must explain the truth to them. Democrats cannot pick your brains.

Assuming YOU have children in this DUPO district. and are not are not complete idiots .. YOU better pay attention to what is being taught and presented TO your children. THEY are being indoctrinated with irrelevant data, obnoxiously "spun" information and totally revisionist history that fits a left-wing intent and niche mold that has little or nothing to do with the reality of what REALLY happened in history.
LOOK INTO THIS!!
Left-wing .. Right -wing, doesn't matter.. TRUTH matters !!!
RESEARCH WHAT IS ACTUALLY BEING TAUGHT HERE!
The "basic" math/arithmetic itself (Common Core) is so confusing and unsolvable (without "teacher" intervention that it is not even possible for the kids to advance without "sign-off" by said "teacher".
If you see nothing wrong with this... nevermind.
Listen up fools.. SAVE your children from this lunacy! YOU are the last line of defense from this obvious insanity!
OK, I'm done .. you've been warned.. the rest is up to you!

Parents need to become more actively involved at the local level in providing input to schools, teachers and school boards.

Since local people pay for public schools through the passage of school bonds and, usually, property taxes, they should exercise their ability to offer input into curricullum and textbook issues more aggressively in my opinion. I was shocked to learn about some of the programs various nutty social engineering interest groups are trying to promote to elementary school children.

Low income and middle class children apparently are now the guinea pigs for influential education lobby groups which cannot propagandize the youngsters of wealthier people because the rich send their kids to private schools. There is a big "education gap" in the USA today, a double standard which does not obtain much discussion in the news media.

Tell your children to pretend to agree with whatever is in the C C Guide so teacher thinks she is doing a good job with the government propaganda, then tell your children the truth about Obama or anything else you wish to challenge and the truth can be your little secret. Children love to put one over on the liberal Union teacher.

The actual politics has gotten lost on all sides. How much teaching of civics and government along with the fact there are different political views and parties.

Opposition to liberalism and progressives does not make a racist or mean spirited one percenter. The opposition on both sides tries to turn philosophical differences into racism.

That's as bad as manifest destiny.

The Dupo School District is a failure by state standard achievement tests so it doesn't matter what book they have on the shelves. The kids can't read it anyway. What is important though is that these children learn how to fill out welfare forms but they don't need school for that. Their parents are experts in that area
