Our ongoing national experiment in mindless, expensive multicultural education continues to go awry.
Take your pick in recent news items that make us old-school types go "Whaaa?" (Or, waaa.)
- The finding that Latino students are now the majority in California schools. How will 'American' history now fare? Meanwhile, the Cali Supremes say in-state tuition for illegals is ok.
- That using a story, written by Julius Lester (a respected black educator), as a 'teachable moment' in a lesson about slavery, can result in a lawsuit.
-That a visually-impaired Muslim gal gets to bring her guide horse to the University of Michigan (as well as ride on a public bus with the mini-horsey and bring it into a public restroom).
- That Reid Buckley, William F.'s brother, describes the spiritual X-factor that is missing in the education of today's young people.
