Orwell Textbook Passage Averted in NC

Maybe you should look at the "civics and ecomonics" texts your darlings are studying.

A proposed North Carolina school textbook that described Roe v. Wade as a ruling against government oppression of rights has been altered following opposition from Catholics and other pro-life advocates.

...The proposed text had asserted that Roe v. Wade, the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that mandated permissive abortion laws nationwide, was an example of the Supreme Court upholding rights “against oppressive government.

Actually, it was an example of SCOTUS manufacturing 'rights' directly contradicting the Natural Law. Further, as a great thinker proposed, "No one has a 'right' to do wrong."

Y'all better look at yours in WI as well.
This is all part of the oh-so-innocent sounding propaganda of the progressives "21st Century" initiatives. NC has more of a top-down curriculum and we just stopped it (for now). We made the national news because they were going to stop teaching US history from pre-1877 in high school.

The "21st Century" push is already in place in Cheddarland.

Now social studies books are required to teach students about the history of organized labor.

I wonder how this chapter is spun?????

Roe v. Wade was also another nail in the States rights coffin. Just one of many.
