Fractured Fairy Tales and other flights of fancy (UPDATE)

I have two items to pass along to readers relating to the proposed revisions to the Social Studies Standards here in Michigan.

{Story continues below the fold}

First, due to the level of feedback from concerned Michigan Residents (to the astonishment of those concerned with not only preserving, but expanding the status quo), the comment period has been moved back to September 30th.

Second, MDE has announced six new “Listen & Learn” sessions across our state. The locations & dates are listed below:

Kalamazoo Central High School Auditorium
2432 North Drake Road
Kalamazoo, MI 49006
August 8 6:00-8:00pm

Ann Arbor
Washtenaw ISD
31819 South Wagner Road
PO Box 1406
Ann Arbor, MI 48106-1406
August 9 6:00-8:00pm

King High School
3200 E. Lafayette St.
Detroit, MI 48207
September 13 6:00-8:00pm

Marquette-Alger RESA
321 Ohio St.
Marquette, MI 49855
September 18 6:00-8:00pm

University Center of Gaylord
80 Livingston Boulevard
Gaylord, MI 49735
September 19 6:00-8:00pm

Mt. Pleasant
Central Michigan University
Bovee University Center
103 East Preston Street
Mt. Pleasant, MI 48859
September 20 6:00-8:00pm

If you are unable to attend any of these events, you may still use the online form to pass along your comments.

If you feel that it’s okay to let your family members believe that America is somehow a democracy, that the LGBTIQ-crowd or radical black nationalists are on an equal footing with the Founding Fathers or that Islam should be taught in Michigan Classrooms (don’t worry, the ACLU won’t act like it was someone doing the same with Christianity), then do nothing and let the Michigan Board of Education adopt the revised standards.

September 30th will be here before you know it.

    All of those "listen & Learn" areas are suspect.

    The populations in those areas trend blue on the R&D map of the last presidential election.

    Of course they are.

    I included them if those reading this happen to be near to where they happen to live and wanted to make their comments in person.

    Last month when I was picking up some of the younger members from my family.from their last days of school, I came across more than a few comments from other adults (whom I later found out were teachers and parapros), who were incensed at the amount of resistance they were getting and practically comparing Sen. Colbeck and the group he had assembled to the Anti-Christ.

    Just like the RTA meetings, these events are scheduled in a time and place where they essentially become an echo chamber to reinforce their position.

    The online form and e-mail addresses I've included earlier to the Mi BoE are another convenient option as well to make your voice heard.
