    CRT is taught coast to coast. That's why Virginia has a Republican Governor now.
    CRT is taught coast-to-coast. (https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/y...-is-being-taught-in-public-schools/ar-AAM2t1V.) Texas is smart enough to have banned it.

    If the parents of a certain community want religions taught in school... whats wrong with that? They pay the taxes that pays for the schools. I was forced to take shop in grammar school. I wanted no part of it. But it didn't hurt me.

    I never heard anyone teaching guns in school except fo JRTC. I was taught a lot about guns in college... but, then again, I went to West Point.

    Physics is physics. F=MA and E=MC2 from coast to coast.

    But you all speak English, do maths and understand science, study art and music and play sports the same way.
    I did specifically say there should be room for individual flavours .
    This issue is not just about curriculum content. It is about who has the right to influence children.
    And you haven't addressed the issue of the problems of a construction of an unevenly educated country.
    The whole idea IMO will create more problems than it solves. Education is about preparing a child for living anywhere, not only in their birth state.

    Frankly your replies are becoming incomprehensible. Must be because you have nothing sensible to say.

    Education, when decentralized to the local level, will become competitive. Schools will strive to produce the best product (well educated students) so that parents will support them. Competition rather than centralized control always leads to excellence. Physics is physics (F=MA) everywhere. Math (2+2 =4) is the same everywhere. The Third law of Thermodynamics (Entropy) is the same everywhere.

    If you say so, but no one was able to provide any material to prove that case. Not a single person.

    I think some would be upset if Islam was taught to non-muslims, or Mormon beliefs to Christians. Some English speakers might also be upset, if teaching is done in Spanish.

    I doubt if a quorum of parents would want that... but... its up to them. It wouldn't be approved unless a majority of parents wanted it.

    Majority rules. If you want something that pleases EVERYONE... wait to die. You won't find such perfection in THIS life. But you have a valid pint. Schools in Spanish Harlem with lots of Spanish speakers, may want provisions made for Spanish taught classes. Folks in Eat Bovine New Hampshire where there are no Spanish speaking students, may NOT want such provisions. A very good reason to keep control of school curricula on under LOCAL control.

    Can you provide some of the teaching material, which you call "evil CRT"?

    I don't teach it. I just read national sources that say it is being taught. I DID teach high school Physics for a couple of yars. If you want I can dig out some old textbooks from doing THAT. I remember taking spelling in grammar school, but all my books from that long ago are long gone. I took two years of calculus at West Point. The textbooks were black. WE called them "The Black Death"... but I don't have any of those anymore either.

    Education is not a commodity.
    How can you derive level playing field competition when your raw material comes from wildly diverse backgrounds?
    You would have schools in Baltimore competing with schools from rural Vermont and expect honest competition.
    Impossible.

    Core curriculum should be under central control with room for locally needful input.
    Life isn't all or nothing. The best results are always compromises.
