I'm concerned for the handful of children who would have signed up for the course. Never really been a fan of the course as it's taught or suggested in most of the places I've heard the discussion. The problem IMO is that as long as it's taught separately, the student learns it in a vacuum and makes no connection between the events he reads about and the people he reads about in his US history classes.. It's like reading a docket full of crimes that are described in the passive... "A lynching took place... there was an unspoken requirement to step off the sidewalk... There was a water fountain designated for her use..." a curious mind would want to know who put that train in motion and how the other people felt about being on the tracks..
