Chicago-Area Leaders: Cancel U.S. History Classes

Chicago-area leaders led by State Rep. La Shawn K. Ford (D) urged the Illinois Board of Education to end U.S. history classes in the state’s public schools until a curriculum that, in their view, is not “racist” can be created.

“When it comes to teaching history in Illinois, we need to end the miseducation of Illinoisans,” Ford said at a press conference Sunday in the suburb of Evanston, according to NBC5 News.

Ford is sponsoring a bill (House Bill 4954), which says that “the teaching of the history of the United States shall include the study of the American civil rights renaissance, that period of time from 1954 to 1965 called the Movement.”

He said during the press conference:

I’m calling on the Illinois State Board of Education and local school districts to take immediate action by removing current history books and curriculum practices that unfairly communicate our history. Until a suitable alternative is developed, we should instead devote greater attention toward civics and ensuring students understand our democratic processes and how they can be involved. I’m also alarmed that people continue to display symbols of hate, such as the recent display of the Confederate flag in Evanston.

The bill also states that it:

Adds as commemorative holidays January 15 (to be known as Humanitarian Day and observed as a day of respect for the principles of human and civil rights and to involve the use of the color white as a visual affirmation to practice these principles), April 4 (to be known as Victims of Violence Wholly Day and observed as a day of respect for the principles of nonviolence and to involve the use of the color black as a visual affirmation to practice these principles), and August 28 (to be known as Dream Day and observed as a day of respect for the spiritual and moral principles of peoplehood and to involve the use of the colors black and white as a visual affirmation to practice these principles).

Evanston Mayor Steve Hagerty (D) said while he is “not comfortable speaking on education, curriculum, and whether history lessons should be suspended,” he nevertheless supports Ford’s bill, according to NBC5 News.

“I am interested in learning more and believe the history of Black people should be taught to all children and include all groups, Women, LatinX, and Native Indians who helped to build America,” he added.

Meleika Gardner, a board member of We Will, an organization of women that states it is “pro-choice, pro-racial equity, and pro-education equity,” also weighed in on the situation.

“The miseducation of our children must stop,” Gardner said.

“It is urgent that it comes to an end as we witness our current climate become more hostile,” she continued. “Miseducation has fed and continues to feed systemic racism for generations. If Black History continues to be devalued and taught incorrectly, then it will call for further action.”

As Breitbart News reported Friday, Black Lives Matter activism materials, including the New York Times‘ “1619 Project,” which claims America was founded on slavery and racism, are being incorporated in the curricula of some government schools, including those in Chicago; Newark, New Jersey; Buffalo, New York; and Washington, DC.

A Michigan school board created a firestorm recently when it approved a Black Lives Matter resolution that states its community is “a primarily white school district” that “occurred as a result of endemic racist housing policies, restrictive covenants, and intentional urban planning that prevented people of color from even entering white spaces.”

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) has introduced the Saving American History Act of 2020, which would ban federal funds for schools that teach the revisionist “1619 Project.”

“The New York Times’s 1619 Project is a racially divisive, revisionist account of history that denies the noble principles of freedom and equality on which our nation was founded,” said Cotton. “Not a single cent of federal funding should go to indoctrinate young Americans with this left-wing garbage.”

Are there not any educators that will push back against this narrative?

The more time goes by,I fear history and the truths of such will be buried and altered in a manner that any push back against it will be regarded as ignorant and unsubstantiated.

Change a culture by erasing history. It happened in the middle East. Its happening here as we type.

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”

― George Orwell, 1984

I’m with ya on this too.

In the history I’ve read no ones hands are clean, teach it all.

Isn’t there some saying about “learning from your mistakes?”

Maintenanceguy’s Orwell quote nails it.

I was having lunch with some colleagues/friends about 4 years ago, all significantly younger than me. One of them made a reference to Trump and the media circus around the election and how they just didn’t understand what the media was doing. Another individual (a PhD mind you) piped up and said that news becoming “entertainment” started with the OJ Simpson chase and subsequent trial. Everyone but me agreed and said that was definitely the turning point. I couldn’t let that go and kind of chuckled at them. I made some comment about B.C. didn’t really mean “before cable” and Pointed out that the world had been here a long, long time before they were even thought of and they would do well to read a little history. I saw this attitude/view/mindset more and more before I retired. I have a hard time getting my mind wrapped around how or why someone thinks this way or where it comes from.

Should the pyramids be torn down since they were built by slaves?
