The Twisted Amendments ...


As reported by The Blaze:
"… Hillcrest High School in Simpsonville, SC, has received “several emails and phone calls” expressing concern over how the textbook, “The Americans,” defines the Second Amendment.

... the district has “looked into the matter and found that page 149 of the state-adopted textbook does not accurately present the Second Amendment.”

“It states that citizens have the right to bear arms as members of a militia of citizen-soldiers,” he added. “This is not accurate. We will inform our high school social studies teachers that they should refer to page 166 of the textbook which accurately presents the Amendment (as originally ratified).”

The textbook, considered by the American Textbook Council (ATC) to be a “widely adopted” history book across the country, is also “state-adopted” in South Carolina.

… the “State Department of Education (DOE) was notified of this issue so they can take appropriate action.” Any future action will be determined by the state DOE.

Conservatives, also should pay close attention to the lumping of the fourth through eighth amendments ~ completely eliminating property rights.

Another question would be … if this textbook is in wide use around the country, under Common Core would the states, or local school districts have the the say so in its use? Or, instead of questioning it on a local level, would we have to take it to a federal level?

Conservatives Of The Upstate is in the process of determining whether the textbook is used in Pickens County?

According to The School District Of Pickens County:

"The book The Americans is not in use in Pickens County Public Schools."
