My sweet mom is an elementay teacher in the public schools and she has said that history is all but gone in the curriculum.  Sad but true.  She teaches in a very low income area where many of her students are the children of hardened gang members who are drug pushing, incarcerated losers.  She refuses to let her students slip by without seeing her get excited over history.  I do have a problem with music and history disappearing in the schools.  Right now the big concern is getting the fried chicken and french fries off the lunch plates because of the obesity problem.  I have a problem with teachers getting all the slack.  It all starts at home.  Parents need to step up to the plate for thier kids' dwindling grades and interest, lack of respect etc.  So here I am, a parent to three kids.  Big responsibility.
