    W. Cleon Skousen (b. 1913-d. 2006), who in the past made outrageous claims about American slave children being freer than white non-slave children and once called Jamestown’s original settlers “communists"

    The kids are struggling because our Progressive Educational system makes sure they stay uninformed

    I read the link in it's entirety and saw nothing whasoever about rewriting the constitution.

    The sad fact is that a sizeable number of Americans do not know the history of their own country. I've seen many from both the left and right make erroneous statements, and both sides are actively trying to shall we say manipulate the ecucation system to their own agendas. This isn't really a partisan issue, it's a national one, basically our education system sucks. And yes, throwing money at it does not help. We've been doing that for what 30-40 years and our kids are no better educated relative to the rest of the world.

    Glen Beck has praised the center’s founder, W. Cleon Skousen (b. 1913-d. 2006), who in the past made outrageous claims about American slave children being freer than white non-slave children and once called Jamestown’s original settlers “communists.”

    “It’s indoctrination, not education. They’re so far from the mainstream of constitutional thought that they are completely indefensible,” said Doug Kendall, director of the Constitutional Accountability Center in Washington, D.C

    That really takes the cake.

    And it usually means that the communities that really need the funding..doesn't get it.

    Which perpetuates the cycle of poverty...forever.

    This is typical of conservative reactionaryism: unhappy and fearful of the present and future they attempt to recreate and hide in the past.

    There can’t be an understanding of the Constitution and its meaning without studying the Supreme Court rulings that interpret and define the actual meaning of the Constitution.

    What’s remarkable about the TPM is they ‘teach’ the Constitution as if Marbury and the subsequent 200 years of Constitutional case law never happened. Consequently they ‘teach’ an inaccurate version of the Founding Document, an ‘understanding’ that conforms to partisan politics, not the law.
