I started 1st grade in 1980, we were taught Columbus "discovered" America, and we all know that Indians were here before him. And probably aliens before them. Hahaha. Anyways, I remember a few years ago seeing something in the news about schools rephrasing "discovered", because you can't discover a place that's already inhabited. Any teachers reading this thread? How much has changed in grade school education since I was learning? Just curious, my daughter will start kindergarten in about 4 years, I hope I will be able to relate to what she will be taught.
