10. The truth is not too complicated to teach children.
Yes, religion was important to many of the founders. But not as the fundamentalism or biblical literalism that those who are trying to take over the schools curriculum would have us believe. The textbooks should reflect an age-appropriate version of the best historical scholarship available. Otherwise we are just dumbing down our own country.
