'I'm terrified.' Idaho students fear repercussions of McGeachin's indoctrination task force

When Wency Suo heard Idaho’s lieutenant governor was creating a task force to look into “indoctrination” in schools, she had a mix of emotions: surprise, disappointment and anger.

At the task force’s first meeting, Suo, a rising high school junior in Boise, noticed something right away — the absence of people of color on the task force.

She said she already distrusted the intentions behind the task force, and what she saw during the first meeting worried her even more.

Caitlin Yang, a rising junior in Boise, said she was skeptical at first when she heard of the task force. When she saw the first meeting, it was clear “what they wanted and what they wanted to take away,” she told the Idaho Statesman. That, she said, included preventing students’ right to be “fully educated on issues about race and the history of race.”

2. You Can't Enforce "A Curriculum"

Kids are inquisitive. Best way to loose them is to lie to them. The library and the internet have a wealth of resources you can tap on your own. I've relearned my classroom history over the years totally on my own.

The Russians, Chinese and North Koreans all know the official histories taught to them are utter BS. If societies that exercise that much control over their populations can't convince them, what hope do these people have? Hell, we can't convince a large fraction of our population COVID and Global Warming are "real".

They only spout this baloney because it riles up their base and motivates them to keep voting.
