All Woke Up: Canceling History

The Illinois Democrat recently issued a press release calling for the immediate removal of curriculum and books that “unfairly communicate” history. 

We’ve seen plenty of history literally dragged down before our eyes this summer. Ford wants to rip it out of history books in Illinois classrooms. The lawmaker seeks to replace all that “racist” stuff with courses that ensure “students understand the democratic process.”

Ford demands a “suitable alternative” to history as presently taught. 

“When it comes to teaching history in Illinois, we need to end the miseducation of Illinoisans,” said Ford, a former history teacher in the Chicago Public Schools.
