I have been voicing my concerns for a while now. I even called the TN Board of Education. It took about 5 calls to even get someone to answer questions. I then caught the lady in an inadvertent omission. I asked, "Why does the Literature book look more like a history book? This does not entice my daughter to read." The lady replied that it wasn’t factual history in the Literature books. I later asked her why they were not reviewing history, and why my daughter wasn't even allowed to bring it home. They were only doing maps, even a local Dollywood map. She said don’t worry they will get history elsewhere. I asked her "where?" to which she replied "their literature books." When I called her on it, she suddenly had a meeting to go to.
I am angered that our schools are being hurt. Our hands are bound. I will not stop until government is not in control of our schools and people like Bill Gates are not allowed to call our CHILDREN a "marketing management group!"
