Balancing The Scales: The Injustice Of Confederate Monuments In Public Spaces - Shared screen with gallery view
Shouldn't the real history be included in k-12 textbooks in NC? My daughter's social studies textbook said "the slaves were happy". That is a true quote.
Yes, it should. Carolina Public Humanities has a great selection of DPI-approved courses on civil rights issues in North Carolina. Please advocate for your school systems to get their teachers to use them! https://k12database.unc.edu/lesson/?s=&lesson-topic=civil-rights
A very powerful statement! Thank you, Judge Maven.
Teachers will teach what is REQUIRED and TESTED.
Is NC history tested on statewide standardized tests? A genuine question; I don’t know.
Not this history that we are discussing today.
If they studied this history, would that take away from studying the NC history that is tested? If so, that’s the level where we need to make the change.
We will be electing a new state head of education in November!
Agree. Not enough emphasis on making curricular and testing change in this regard. I believe this is critical.
When I have participated in racial equity training for youth where we teach them the history of race they always ask, "Why didn't I learn this in school?" They want to know the truth!
It is critical to change the curriculum. Yes.
We should vote as you said and then advocate with the new leader.
Thank you all so much! This has been a dynamic discussion!
Thank you to all of the panelists and organizers.
