And You Wonder Why I Homeschool

Apparently, ABC and the Scholastic Corporation have no problem with basing lesson plans on a "docudrama"

Sure, call me a horrible parent - but I'd like, when my daughter learns history, for her to learn actual history instead of historical fiction.

I could be being too hard on the Scholastic Corporation - the lesson plan could be "how to make a bunch of shit up and have a national network portray your political hackery as actual historical events".

More about it on Firedoglake. Now I'm off to teach my daughter basic addition with Dungeons and Dragons.

I'm glad they killed this mini-series, but this situation is insane. I'm dumbfounded that Scholastic would do this, but then who knows how much they've been infiltrated.

I just found your site through Blg rocket and I'm enjoying reading through some of your posts. It's a nice change from some of thenonsense I've been reading lately.

Thanks!
