It figures that Leftists here are not in favor of this.
God forbid the history of the greatest country on the planet is taught.
Oops I used the word “God”, that should set them off as well.

Today we have more good news related to wiping out marxism and far-left/woke propaganda,
AKA objective reality.
“Patriotic Education” Seriously. This is nothing but state sponsored propaganda. And you all are cheering on government brainwashing, simply because it favors the political party you’ve been tricked into believing is working in your best interest.
I know, right? How dare the current administration push this thing about educating our kids about FREEDOM and LIBERTY and the pursuit of happiness, and how all of that got started.
It's just terrible!

What is "patriotic education" ?
Sounds a bit Orwellian.
I think it is meant to offset the cultural Marxism so prevalent in today’s education system. Nothing is more Orwellian than Communism.

me too... i learned all about how the founders were slave holding racists and the constitutions was only written for rich white land owners, all about the destructive nature of capitalism, and the fairness of socialism too.

Fair. I will say, though, my 11 year old is not really equipped with the necessary tools for critical analysis of US history, understanding the nuances of where historical records originate from (primary sources vs secondary sources), unwrapping biases of sources, and generally deep diving into controversial corners of our nation's history. These are topics that belong, if not in the final years of HS, certainly are fair game in a college education.
So what are you saying? Do the jingoistic thing in grammar/middle school and hopefully let them unravel that if they go to college?
