The Michigan state house education committee has received three bills worth checking out.
Each one promoting a better understanding of the history of our country and the reasons for its founding.
Hopefully not too late, as much of the indoctrinated are already teaching.
- SB121 essentially encourages schools to set aside one week a year where the students are actually exposed to the founding documents, not as tangential history, but why the compact and the constitution was developed.
- SB120 removes the perceived shackles placed on public instruction with regard to the readings of historic records. Heaven forbid (pun intended) that johnny hears the word God when a reading of the federalist papers, proclamations, etc.
- SB423 Encourages the schools to provide instruction focusing on the principles of the Declaration of Independence (self evident truths), the US Constitution (our compact), and the Michigan State Constitution. It also requires the state Board of Education to update curriculum and testing standards to cover these subjects.
But we applaud such measures as worthy and restorative for our state and country.
