The manner in which the 1st Amendment is being taught to our students is both truncated and distorted to fit the political correctness of the times. Want to know why kids are marching around the cafeteria protesting the quality and choices of food? Sitting on Wall Street? Because they have been taught in their "social studies" classes that the 1st Amendment is only about giving them the right to protest. Now we have a generation with full hearts and empty heads who are so embued with "self-esteem"and self importance... clamoring for the bigger government, regulations and to be taken care of...... Having sat on a citizen's review committee for test book adoption, I can say that civics and American history has turned into propaganda tool.
