Common Core educational standards already mandate that leftist propaganda be included in virtually any public school lesson taught. Such activism is apparently not enough for Democrat California Assemblyman Chris Holden, though.
A recent bill he sponsored – which passed the Assembly and is now headed for the state Senate – would force high school history teachers to lavish additional praise on Barack Obama due to the supposed racial significance of his election.
The fact that millions of Americans voted for a half-white candidate, he maintains, “should not be a mere footnote within textbooks,” concluding teachers should “focus on the significance of Americans overcoming our nation’s past and acknowledging that Americans are moving in the right direction.”
