Protesters pack meeting on education changes


Associated Press

GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) -- Students and teachers fighting a plan to promote patriotism and downplay civil disobedience in some suburban Denver U.S. history courses packed a school board meeting Thursday where the controversial changes could face a vote.

Turnout was so high that the teachers union streamed video from the meeting room -- which holds a couple hundred people -- onto a big screen in the parking lot outside.

About 300 students, parents and teachers opposed to the proposal rallied in the parking lot and marched along nearby streets before the meeting.

Carole Morenz, holding a small American flag and a sign that said "History matters. Know the truth," traveled from Pueblo because she said she's worried the change in approach to teaching history could be the "biggest cultural shift of our lifetime."

1. Wow. Looks like someone is pushing this as a national trend, to not teach real history.

As if the people in this country actually know much at all about it.
