I agree, "It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."
No one is saying they have to believe that Jews were the cause of Germany's woes. While this statement is distasteful, people are asked to do things everyday they may not personally agree with and yet they still must have the critical reasoning and writing skills to complete their assignment.

Hating Nazi's...isn't that just a bit redundant? Certainly not worth mentioning.
Our school did a debate on gay marriage for and against. The against side literally had nothing to present.
What the hell, people! We have; MSNBC saying your kids don't belong to you. Kids bringing home assignments about trading freedom for security. Now Nazi's.
The assignment told students ‘You must argue that Jews are evil.’ They were given five paragraphs to argue that Jews were the source of Germany’s problems.

How is it teaching propaganda to learn not to accept things at face value, to think before forming an opinion?
But it solidifies my assertion that my youngest will be home schooled.
