They have stupid teachers in Britain too

Times Online reported ‘Don’t teach children patriotism’
It makes it too hard forthe teachers to convince them their country is bad.
Patriotism should be avoided in school lessons because British history is “morally ambiguous”, a leading educational body recommends.
Maybe the leading edicational body needs to study history a littl more.
History and citizenship lessons should stick to the bare facts rather than encouraging loyalty to Britain when covering subjects such as the Second World War
Should they show the Nazis as the good guys?
or the British Empire, the Institute of Education researchers said. Teachers should not instill pride in what they consider great moments of British history, as more shameful episodes could be downplayed or excluded.
