Respect History, Remove History Alive !
In the past few weeks, many parents in our community have come together to protest the irresponsible choice of the curriculum chosen for our 6th grade class at AMS. The book chosen, "History Alive, the medieval times and beyond" has been criticized in the past and even removed for its biased and indoctrinational tendencies. It holds one cultures religion and beliefs above another. It does not show a historical accuracy that an intelligent and proper study guide should, and sections of it read more like a religious manuscript, rather than a historical study. We all have our reasons for our petition to have this book removed and a RESPONSIBLE cuuriculum put in its place, but the biggest reason is it was NOT chosen with the well being of our children or their education. We have a parental RIGHT to have the Administration and educators who we entrust our children to daily, to show accountability and do the job they were trained to do. Our current class is not the only ones who are affected by this, many have younger children in the school system who will have to deal with this irresponsibility if it is not settled now. Don't let this affect them too. Thank you
