I am homeschooling my grandson (6th grade). We are using the local school systems text books. His social studies textbook does not have the word republic in it; at least I've not yet found it. Instead of calling our government a republic the textbook says it is a “presidential democracy”. “In a presidential democracy, the president has executive powers independent of the legislature.” How's that for revisionist education?
