7. I've got you beat by three years LOL!
From what I have heard, all history and civics classes have been severely curtailed. Seems like there is some dissent about teaching any history that includes contributions by African Americans and civil rights, etc (among other controversial subjects.)

It seems that some of the red states especially don't like teaching that they actually lost the civil war or that their grandparents may have been wrong in lynching people of color.

But all in all, there is no longer a consensus about what ACTUALLY happened not only in American history but also in World History.

If you think bac, one of Bush's staffers said that while we were still thinking, THEY were actually writing history (or something like that - I paraphrased it wildly.)
