From the Frontline: Can We Trust the Textbooks?
Education has become a battleground. Anyone who believes that education can be neutral is mistaken. Ideas have consequences. Actions flow from thought patterns. How reliable are the textbooks in most schools? Should government be controlling educational institutions? Who should be responsible for the education of the next generation? Can we trust what we see and read in museums? Are historians all in agreement on what is most important and on the lessons to be learned from history? Have the experts always proved to be right? What about films which purport to be “based on a true story”? or “inspired by real events”? How can we distinguish between real history and fake history? What resources are available to help us to ensure that our children receive real education and not secular humanist indoctrination?
