    So sad that "critical thinking" is considered subversive! I disagree about your "advanced" section - I think those should absolutely be required, in addition to citizenship. For the younger kids, teaching social and emotional health as well.

    This would be useful, and comes under the heading I put down as "politically subversive" in my answer.

    Ain't that the truth! And how about some studies in critical reasoning and discernment. Teach the kids to question what they are told and think for themselves instead of absorbng propaganda like a sponge. And what's with taking phys ed out of school?

    And the parents can afford to lose that much income?? I am sure employers would not be happy if they were forced to pay for it. I can hear the yells of "Communism" already.
