Rick Santorum (do not Google “Santorum” at work) blames the left for low test scores among public school students:
We don’t even know our own history. There was a report that just came out last week that the worst subject of children in American schools is — not math and science — its history. It’s the worst subject. How can we be a free people. How can we be a people that fight for America if we don’t know who America is or what we’re all about. This is, in my opinion, a conscious effort on the part of the left who has a huge influence on our curriculum, to desensitize America to what American values are so they are more pliable to the new values that they would like to impose on America.
Okay, did I miss the staff meeting where it was announced that the Left is promoting the teaching of “intelligent design” as a counterpoint to evolution and re-writing the high school textbooks in Texas to replace Thomas Jefferson with Newt Gingrich?
