As hard (or easy) as it may be to believe, the education establishment in North Carolina is proposing new standards that would eliminate the teaching of any American history prior to 1877 to high school seniors.
Of course, the people pushing these changes have a perfectly logical explanation...
We are certainly not trying to go away from American history," Rebecca Garland, the chief academic officer for North Carolina Department of Public
Instruction, told Fox News. "What we are trying to do is figure out a way to teach it where students are connected to it, where they see the big idea, where they are able to make connections and draw relationships between parts of our history and the present day."
