At the Idaho State Journal, Leonard Hitchcock examines Republicans’ war against truth in learning. A snippet (emphasis added):
They (students–ed.) also need to learn about American history. America is a country that, like other countries, has made mistakes — sometimes very egregious mistakes — but has also (however belatedly), tried to learn from those mistakes and atone for them. Loyalty to country — a moral virtue highly prized by conservatives — should not be the result of teachers’ lying about a country’s history. Whitewashing America’s past does no service to anyone.
