What was that about a politicized curriculum?

Rhymes With Right asks the question. Remember Texas?

Then there's this:

Standing in front of a wall-to-wall mural featuring a who's who of revolutionaries, including Ho Chi Minh, Fidel Castro and Che Guevara, and boldly displaying the motto Patria o Muerte, Venceremos!!! (Fatherland or Death, We Shall Overcome!!!), a group of teachers, students, parents and community activists in the Los Angeles Unified School District gathered last month for an unusual field trip to Arizona, to protest that state's controversial immigration law.

A video posted on YouTube shows LA social studies teacher Jose Lara interviewing teachers and students on May 28 at the headquarters of an organization calling for a Mexican revolution on U.S. soil. Soon after he shot the video, many in the group left for an overnight "freedom ride" to Phoenix to protest what Lara tells the camera is a "racist and outrageous" law.

Only MSM talking heads can get all uppity about "capitalism" [supposedly] being replaced by "free enterprise," but then shrug their shoulders about a school field trip featuring those great humanitarians Castro, Minh and Guevara.

LAUSD, a wretched hive of scum and villiany. Joanne Jacobs had an article out this week on Birmingham High School which left LAUSD and went charter a year ago. It's already paying some dividends with graduation rates.
