children already do that. Children are able to make up their own
minds if you give them FACTS and not public school programming.
“Critical thinking” only gives teachers and textbooks the opportunity to
lead them in whatever direction their philosophy dictates.
schools need to teach our children the FACTS and allow them to form their
own opinions. This phrase “critical thinking” might be well intentioned,
but public schools do not have the right to play mind games, to lead our
children to discern through their philosophies, under their frameworks and
guidelines. Public schools are teaching our children to filter everything

of “public school” revoltingly has deemed itself to be a god, equipped to
program our children how to think.

version of a religion and led to respond the way it slants, repeating and
instilling public schools view on it. Our children should be learning
FACTS, to the best ability of the school to provide them.
thinking may be appropriate in other applications, but definitely NOT

our children untruths and “critical thinking,” what made this country
great will be gone. As the atheist in our local paper stated about
omission of God from the pledge,

Most states have similar state standards or
worse. Many States follow the lead of California, Texas and Florida. FOX

"What gets approved in three of
those adoption states — Texas, California and Florida — could have a
massive impact on what the rest of the nation's schoolchildren read.
"Those three states have a very
significant impact on textbook publishing. What happens in those volumes
wind up being at least the basis of national editions sold throughout the
country," said Stephen Driesler, executive director of the Association of
American Publishers school division.
As Driesler explained, that's
