Ok so they took a book and there using it to curropt there youth into a false belief. Who cares? Are you honestly surprised by this? If they saw a use to us the bible to make the americans out to be evil they would.
American schools suck when it comes to teaching there pupils about the world, i mean it's all America is good the world is evil. I mean the education there public education atleast is so awful they did random testing and found that only 35% of highschool students could name all 50 states. I mean shoot we had tests on that in jr. high in american history. The education system there needs a seious boost with better monitoring of who is teaching these kids with real programs.
When asked this simple question 97% answered wrong, "who's were the first peoples to inhabit the america's"
78% said christopher columbus
right answer, native american crossed the bearing straight and lived here for centuries before europeans.
columbus is a bad answer anyways cause the vikings were here 600-800 years before he made his epic journey.
What scares me was when my cousins came here to live from the states and it took them a year to catch up cause the math they were working on in grade 9 my sister was working on in grade 6 .
sorry if this offends you, but really the school systems there need serious work.
Is this an example of the superiority of Canadian schools? LOL.
