CALIFORNIA LAWMARKER SEEKS TO RAISE AWARENESS OF DEPRESSION ERA DEPORTATIONS

Rate this Entry

I consider myself fairly knowledgeable about US history, but knew nothing about this story. It's important that we learn this history since mistakes resulting in the deportation of US citizens is becoming more and more common.

    The story is remarkable but I would side with Gov.Schwarzenegger that the state should not force schools to mention specific historical events. It is not up to politicians to determine which historical facts are important enough to be taught at elementary school.

    I don't necessarily agree that politicians should have no say on the curriculum being taught in the schools. I don't think they should be micro-managing, but I don't have a problem with some general weighing in. Here in the South, I think it's crucial that children learn in the schools about the Civil Rights movement. Mississippi's legislature just passed a bill mandating this be taught in the schools - http://www.stateaction.org/blog/?p=83 . It's a critical part of our history and I think it makes a real difference in ensuring that younger citizens are more tolerant than their older counterparts.

    I looked at the Mississippi's bill and I think it does not REQUIRE teaching on Civil Rights movement. It AUTHORIZES such teaching. Specifically the bill says:

    "The State Board of Education may make civil rights and human rights education a part of the K-12 curriculum of instruction in Mississippi public schools."

    In other words politicians express their non-binding opinion on what should be taught at schools. I certainly have no problem with that. I am just afraid of the situation when politicians may exclude certain events from history, or exclude mentioning some scientific facts, or impose teaching some theories such as intellegent design etc. Involving politicians in education is a double edges sword.

    I don't think we simply say legislators should abdicate their responsibilities just because some have a tendency to push bad ideas.

    Look at all the desparate vitriol coming from some of the readers..now they could not nominate Romney, could they?

    Demented anti-immigration folks are lamenting the prospect of "John "on cocaine" McCain and Barrack "on crack" Obama". One of them will win, but these poor souls will feel like getting high on crack or powder cocaine on the morning of November 5, 2008.

    "the prospect of "John "on cocaine" McCain and Barrack "on crack" Obama"."

    I, for one prefer Mayor Mike's eloquent summation of the situation:

    http://wcbstv.com/politics/bloomberg.bush.criticism.2.702581.html

    "NEW YORK (AP) - Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has decided against his own White House run, said Thursday that his endorsement will go to the most straight-talking candidate, adding that "at least we'll have an adult in office who can lead and can accomplish something."

    Bloomberg, a Democrat-turned-Republican-turned-independent, later ducked a question about whether he was taking a shot at President Bush, and cracked a joke instead."

    Ouch!
