With schools like these, who needs morons?
Students [attending the California Alternative High School] learned that Congress had two houses -- the Senate for Democrats and the House for Republicans; that the U.S. flag had not been updated to reflect the addition of Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico to the "original" 50 states; that the federal "administrative" branch oversees the Treasury Department (news - web sites); and that World War II occurred from 1938 to 1942.
I mean, come on, everyone knows the Senate is for Republicans and the House is for the Dems! Ha-ha!
Reading the rest of the article, I at first thought it might just be possible that some right-wing attorney general was distorting the facts to get a school educating the "wrong" sort of people shut down. Such things have been known to happen. Thankfully (or not, depending on your perspective), TSG is carrying excerpts from the manual in question. It's actually worse than the media are portraying it.
I guess there really are times when government intervention is a good thing.
