    Schools do not "lie" to students. All academic lessons are subject to shading in one direction or another depending upon the person doing the teaching and the sources used to teach from. The only ones lying to the students are the students themselves when they take the word of a single teacher, book, or web site as gospel and fail to form their own opinions by checking several information sources.

    School's don't lie, but since you're 17 the automatic assumption is that schools do lie, along with parents, government, and anyone else who is old enough to buy alcohol.

    In the 22 years that I was in school (elementary, Jr. High, High School, College, Grad School) not once did a teacher present a false fact. That is not to say that the entire truth was presented, either.

    Washington's treatment (or mis-treatment) of slaves has no bearing on the events of the American Revolution, so why should it be included in the lesson? Much has happened in 6,000 years of recorded history and there is precious little time to present it in.

    Historical dates, places, and events are well-known, but these days it's trendy to go out of your way to find some shred of something in order to villify any and all historical figures who happen to be white men.

    Oh and to answer your question, the US never went to communism because Americans like money too much for the communist system to work.

    Re: Why School Lies to Kids

    ok, this is a touchy subject on which I think I'm kinda in the middle...

    I don't agree that schools flat out lie to kids but I see a definate possibility for a doctored/censored version of the truth. Getting historical...In Nazi Germany Hiters' schools did teach kids completely bogus stuff but also alot of stuff was taught from a perspective that favoured Nazi ideology. All through the cold war our governments hid the truth from us and still today there are thousands of classified things and huge black budgets. Whos to say some of the things we learn aren't taught from a perspective or in a way that sculps/molds your views desicively in favour of the government, just like the news, why should I believe it just becuase they say it happened?

    sorry that my argument contradicts itself btw , there is no way to proove it that I can see.

    Why? Do you need to know what is in the National Inquirer as well for your current events?

    People who claim they weren't "great/honest/honorable" use writting from the time period to say it. Problem is they take writtings from their contemporaries that hated them. If you think that politics is dirty now you should read some of the crap that they flung around back them. If polititions were accused of half of the things now that they were then there would be libel charges being pressed right and left. (Though I guess if they're a Supreme Court nominee anything goes.)

    Point is, check the sources. It's not enough to say "a paper in 17XX said __". Papers lied all the time back then. You need to know who wrote it and why. But I guess that's more effort then most people are willing to go through and as Zui Quan said "Historical dates, places, and events are well-known, but these days it's trendy to go out of your way to find some shred of something in order to villify any and all historical figures who happen to be white men." So unfortunatly there are now a ton of books out there regurgitating gossip, rummers, and libel mixed with fact and there are alot of people buying it as the "truth".

    It's sad really. Society has become extreamly hostile to contemporary political figures but at least they can defend themselves. Tearing down someone who has been dead for centuries and can't for the all mighty buck is about as low as you can get.
