Heritage Academy is one of Arizona’s oldest public charter schools. They’ve recently come under fire for two books which they have integrated into their teaching material, which have Liberals going nuts. One of the books states:
“if [African-American children] ran naked it was generally from choice, and when the white boys had to put on shoes and go away to school they were likely to envy the freedom of their colored playmates.”
Liberals are enraged that the books, written by Conservative Christian author Cleon Skousen have been included in the curriculum. The principle of Heritage Academy, however, has made no move to pull the books from classrooms.
Heritage Academy is using Skousen’s material to teach their students that religion was something that heavily influenced our founding fathers, and therefore the foundation of our great nation. The Left wants to keep religion entirely out of the classroom – unless of course it’s dealing with Islam or atheism. Once again, the Liberals are taking up arms against Christianity.
What do you think? Is the excerpt from this particular book racist, or just a politically incorrect account of what actually happened during the Civil War era? Let us know how you feel in the comments section!
