    This sounds more like indoctrination than education. Teaching about the history of America's free markets? Do they include the history of free marketing in human misery, that was slavery? Do they include the history of the labor struggle? Do they note the costs of unlimited capitalism in its cost to the American economy, jobs and enslavement of third world workers in order to pad the portfolios of the uber rich? Do they teach that money is speech and corporations are people? How can the leaders of this school not find America controversial when we engage in wars around the world that kill thousands of innocent civilians, manipulate foreign governments and economies? There must always be controversy whenever there is a government as large and powerful as ours is. There is only absence of dispute when there is unilateral power. These children are not being well served.
