Reject this amendment, it violates everything valuable about education and free thinking
 

History is controversial, we can not sanatize our history for fear of offending someone because then our young men and women will never learn to truly deal with the world around them.  They must learn a variety of materials and information, some nice, some not, to truly understand and be able to improve the world in which they live.
