Hmm, many classics were written by clergy - like Gulliver's Travel's by Jonathan Swift. I wonder if they will get pulled from the shelves to make sure we keep religion out of the library.

Yes! Libraries are both essential and a privilege. I gladly support the library and education in general. Check out this article from FoxNews.com

The Florida Department of Education lowered the performance level standard on a state writing exam after only 27 percent of fourth graders passed, MyFoxOrlando reports......... Some teachers say the question was unfair, arguing it may be unrealistic to expect fourth-graders to know what a camel is.

I agree with gregmack. Picking oranges is one thing, but beatings is another. Discussing it in history class or social studies is understandable, but using it in a math question is totally unnecessary. Would you form math questions on how may soldiers had their legs blown off or how many scalps were taken? It doesn't have to be a race issue. Just use some common sense, human dignity and compassion.

This program is a great idea and obviously needed. I'm happy for some of my tax money to be used this way. BuzzG's comment sounds like a broad assumption.
