Over 700 Jefferson County High School students are staging walkouts and protests over proposed changes to the Advanced Placement History curriculum. According to Colorado Public Radio:
Last week, a school board member proposed that advanced placement history classes be required to promote free enterprise and patriotism and be required to avoid classroom materials that encourage social strife or civil disobedience. Two high schools in Jefferson County closed Friday after dozens of teachers called in sick in protest.
According the online petition to be delivered to the School District:
Jeffco Public School Board has just proposed a change of curriculum stating that, “Materials should not encourage or condone civil disorder, social strife or disregard of the law. Instructional materials should present positive aspects of the United States and its heritage.”
This means that important parts of our history such as the Civil Rights Movement, Native American genocide, and slavery will not be taught in public schools. If these important lessons are not taught, children will not learn from them, and what will stop them from happening again? This is a severe form of censorship intended to keep the youth ignorant and easy to manipulate. I’m hoping to get enough signatures to prove that this is a public issue, so, please, if this is important to you, please sign. Do not let our youth grow up in ignorance; we all deserve the truth!

Wait whaaaaaaat this is like the reunion I never asked for but always wanted.
A man was bothered by a dog barking, so he decided to go up to Molly the corgi, take his gun out, and shoot her at point blank range. Molly died in her mom’s arms. She wasn’t even the dog that was barking. Go to: http://chn.ge/1DrKrom and sign the petition to bring awareness to this horrific event. Let’s hope that this piece of trash gets charged to the fullest extent and more. My heart goes out to Molly’s family. I’m trying to imagine what I would do if someone shot Corgi or Stump Stump and the images of my vengeance are too grotesque to be shared on an upbeat corgi page. #JusticeForMolly #CorgiCommunity
