How Government Schools Use Bad History to Promote the State
On this episode of Radio Rothbard, Ryan McMaken and Tho Bishop look at common American history myths baked into government school curriculums. While Republican governors have begun to prioritize removing “critical race theory” and other forms of modern “leftwing indoctrination” from textbooks, there are a number of historical episodes left unchallenged that all lead to a deification of state power and a celebration of progressive politics.
