Huge news for Americans that are tired of being told that America is a racist nation. The President has put a stop to that insane liberal indoctrination.
“I just signed that executive order to teach your students pro-American values,” Trump told his supporters.
The president announced the idea of the education commission in September after attempts to remove statues of some American Revolution and colonial figures in the midst of riots sparked by the death of George Floyd in May.
According to details of the executive order published on the White House’s website on Monday, the Trump administration noted “recent attacks on our founding have highlighted America’s history related to race,” adding that they are filled “one-side” and “divisive” rhetoric that “ignore or fail to properly honor and recollect the great legacy of the American national experience—our country’s valiant and successful effort to shake off the curse of slavery and to use the lessons of that struggle to guide our work toward equal rights for all citizens in the present.”
“In recent years, a series of polemics grounded in poor scholarship has vilified our Founders and our founding,” the White House’s order added. “Despite the virtues and accomplishments of this Nation, many students are now taught in school to hate their own country, and to believe that the men and women who built it were not heroes, but rather villains.”
The federal commission will encourage a patriotic view of American history, but it noted that some local schools have control over what curriculum is taught to students. Some Democrats have said they would resist the federal initiate.
“A restoration of American education grounded in the principles of our founding that is accurate, honest, unifying, inspiring, and ennobling must ultimately succeed at the local level. Parents and local school boards must be empowered to achieve greater choice and variety in curriculum at the State and local levels,” the order stated.
It came after Trump criticized the New York Times’ controversial “1619 Project.”
“The left has warped, distorted and defiled the American story with deceptions, falsehoods, and lies,” Trump said in September. “There’s no better example than the New York Times’ totally discredited 1619 Project.”
