    Should "Pride in America" be part of your child's curriculum?

    Patriotism is currently not a subject in public schools. Should parents demand that their children be taught this in schools to instill in them a sense of pride in America?

    All nationalities should have pride in their own countries culture and achievements. This, however, should be based on real history - not the nonsense that is taught in schools.

    We - the brits - are taught to have pride in the achievements of empire (the sun never sets etc) but to do this we have to ignore the long list of genocidal atrocities perpetrated by British forces, the enslavement of indigenous peoples and the carrying off of other nations resources to furnish our industrial revolution with raw materials.

    National pride should extend to supporting your national side in sports and how far your culture (the arts, homegrown music etc) has influenced the world - and no further.

    I agree with those who feel that pride in America should be based on our actual merits, and not our international "superpowe," which has been obtained through the oppression of many. The Smithsonian Institution National Museum has preserved so many good things related to our country. Children should be taken there to see those things....but to then be given the message that they and their unique, original thoughts have the power to make our country better than it is...and decide that our nation will be great when we are at peace with the world, rely on clean energy to live our lives, and all citizens are fed healthy food, have a home, and have adequate health care provided for them.
