It is no longer in the curriculum - don't you know, it is racist to insist on reading/writing/math skills! Some of the disadvantaged egos may be wounded because they don't excel in these "old white men" disciplines!

The bad news: GOP "leadership" continues to ignore or, worse, enable this Nanny State racket (hello, Jeb Bush).

The good news: An independent grassroots revolt outside the Beltway bubble is swelling. Families are taking their children's academic and privacy matters out of the snoopercrats' grip and into their own hands.
