One of the benefits of homeschooling your children is that you can use your discretion about what you want your kids to learn and can make sure they don’t end up being exposed to bad or misguided teachers.
Unfortunately for some children in an Arizona Charter school, they are being taught that slavery was good for Black people. Many are outraged about it and there is even a law suit, but one has to wonder what else the children at the school are being taught.
According to naturallymoi.com:
Most historians agree that the enslavement of Africans for profit remains one the darkest periods of American history. So why is an Arizona charter school teaching students that slavery actually benefited blacks?
According to a lawsuit against the Arizona State Board for Charter Schools by the Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, two books used by charters in Arizona, The 5,000 Year Leap and The Making of America by Cleon Skousen, teach Christian fiction and racist nonsense.
University of Baltimore legal scholar Garrett Epps told the Arizona Republic that The Making of America by Skousen are inaccurate.
“Parts of his major textbook, ‘The Making of America,’ present a systematically racist view of the Civil War. … A long description of slavery in the book claims that the state (of slavery) was beneficial to African Americans and that Southern racism was caused by the ‘intrusion’ of northern abolitionists and advocates of equality for the freed slaves,” Epps said.
