Farah takes on revisionist history

By WND Staff

David Boaz, executive vice president of the Cato Institute, will Joseph Farah’s guest today on his nationally syndicated radio talk show, “WorldNetDaily RadioActive,” to discuss the selectivity of America’s history teachers.

In a recent column, Boaz explains how America’s government-school students are being taught certain politically correct aspects of history, while more basic facts go unlearned.

“For instance, the Washington Post recently surveyed 76 teenagers in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia,” wrote Boaz. “It found that only one-third could name a general from World War II, and only half could name at least one battle. But two-thirds could describe how the Japanese-Americans were sent to internment camps.

“Tiffany Charles was typical. She got a B in history at her high school in Montgomery County, Md., one of the nation’s highest-rated school systems. She wasn’t able to name a single general or battle. Nor did she know who was president during World War II, nor what year the war ended. She did, however, remember many details about the camps. ‘We talked a lot about those concentration camps,’ she told Post reporter Jay Mathews.”

Says Boaz: “One might suspect that our teachers are more determined to teach the sins of America and its founders than the basic facts of American history and American achievements.”
