So, I homeschool my kids, and now we're looking at history.
I thought it would be easy. Just teach them Zinn's "A People's History."
But Holy Fuck! Have you read that thing? The kind, giving natives slaughtering themselves and their kids faced with Spanish slavery/colonialism (he goes into detail about parents slitting the throats of their kids before they slit their own!)? This is the most horrifying story I've ever read, and I'm a King fan!
I guess I'm going to give my kids the choice: Fairy Tale History (And I can teach that), or are you curious enough to want to know the truth, as gruesome as it is?
How would you deal with it if you were a homeschooler?
