According to a new Government-backed study, an alarming number of teachers are dropping Holocaust studies from their curriculum in order to avoid offending anyone.
There is also a resistance to covering the 11th century Crusades—a time in history where Christians fought Muslim armies for the control of Jerusalem. Those teachings reportedly contradict what is being taught in local mosques.
The study was funded by the Department for Education and Skills, and sought to uncover information about ‘emotive and controversial’ history teaching in primary and secondary schools.
Now, the findings are causing many Americans to question whether schools are being used ‘as a vehicle for promoting political correctness.’
The report also cited a specific incident in a northern city, where teachers were fearful of confronting ‘anti-Semitic sentiment and Holocaust denial among some Muslim pupils.’
What do you think? Is this absolutely outrageous?
