Minnesota Dept. of Education Replaces American History with Trans/Gay/Race Curriculum

New education standards have been proposed in the State of Minnesota that will eliminate classes on the Holocaust, and American history and replace them with class work on gay, trans, and racism subjects.

The new standards would eliminate any teaching about World War I, World War II, the Holocaust, the Civil War, the American Revolution, communism, and George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, according to John Hinderaker at the Powerline blog.

Under Minnesota law, the state’s Department of Education establishes standards for K-12 public schools.

“The benchmarks for each category are revised by committee every 10 years,” Hinderaker wrote. “This year, the Social Studies standard is being revised. The committee undertaking the revision, as you would expect in the Tim Walz administration, is hard left.”

The proposed standards call for students to describe “the tactics used by the United States government to claim indigenous and Mexican land, including but not limited to an analysis of the ideology of Manifest Destiny and its relationship to whiteness, Christianity, and capitalism; and analyze the strategies used by Native Americans and Mexicans to respond to U.S. settler colonialism.”

Hinderaker added there are “an extraordinary number of benchmarks devoted to the history of Native Americans, who comprise between 1 and 2 percent of Minnesota’s population.”

“So, under the Walz administration and for years to come, school children will be kept in ignorance of our history, and taught to hate America,” he said.

Minnesota’s leftist education officials are saying that anyone who opposes their new curriculum is a racist because, of course they are.

Hinderaker concluded, saying, it’s “classic of leftist bureaucratic arrogance: they undertake to promulgate a new set of benchmarks pursuant to a statute, they solicit public comments per the statutory requirement, and then ignore the public’s views and proceed with their far-left agenda.”
