A Good Plan

I’ve seen and heard the Truth in Education (TIE) crowd at public meetings and I can say that they have zero knowledge of how to conduct themselves in a public forum. Seriously, shouting over the person who has the floor is beyond rude. I can’t believe that their own children aren’t embarrassed by the poor behavior of their own parents.

As for what should be taught in Guilford schools, the truth sounds like a good plan to me. Imagine teaching real history instead of the watered-down version that TIE proposes. I recently had a conversation with a high school sophomore who finds the TIE version of a curriculum patronizing—smart kid at 15 years old.
