Selbstvernichtung, Progressive Style

Terminally deterministic educators in Britain might find that dooming kids to meaningless transnationalism (if anything at all.) As we'll found so often before, this has nothing to do with the kids education, but the educators who perceive themselves to be a sort of elite penchance for re-education. That is, if they'll amit that the past even exists in history class...
Three quarters of teachers felt obliged to tell students about the danger of patriotism. The survey suggested neither pupils nor teachers wanted patriotism endorsed by schools.

Historians said last night, however, that it was impossible to teach the subject without patriotism or a recognition that British values were rooted in the past.
Progressive call this progress. Who knew?

Inasmuch that many Britons live cheek by jowl with some in a culture selectively believing that history ended in the 7th century, all I can say that it was nice knowing ya!
