But first, the issue that set her off; the CIA’s listed reason why Al Qaida attacked the U.S... It was our policy's abroad in the Arab nations. It’s true no matter how angry bumper sticker patriots deny it, like Kara Sand for instance:
Checking your child’s homework is a natural duty for any parent, but one mother stumbled upon a controversial question on her fifth graders quiz, and she’s ticked off. “It asks why the U.S. may be a target for terrorism. Her son chose the correct answer - ‘decisions we made in the United States that negatively impact people elsewhere.’” (Via KRISTV) Kara Sand believes the question suggests America was partially to blame for the September 11 terrorist attacks. She took a photo of her son’s test, and posted it to Facebook where it went viral, garnering support from thousands of other angry parents.
The test was based on an educational video by the company Safari Montage, which provides downloadable educational videos on several subjects for grades K through 12. The company stands by its video on government and terrorism, but has apologized.
Promote the general welfare…
Kara Sands tells us the quiz opened her eyes to the content in lessons taught at the school. Her biggest concern is curriculum called CSCOPE. One worksheet on the Bill of Rights names food and medicine as rights, not personal responsibility. "He got marked wrong, because it is, it is our responsibility for shelter, it’s our responsibility for food for medicine, it’s not the government's responsibility," Sand said.
Yes it is our personal responsibility if we can afford it, but when we can’t, the government will provide the essentials of life and not let us die. I thought that’s what made our nation great.
Sands says parents need to get involved. "When I teach my children that you have to work hard and you have to earn a living and they go to school and learn something different I absolutely take issue with that," Sands said.
