Over 700 Jefferson County High School students are staging walkouts and protests over proposed changes to the Advanced Placement History curriculum. According to Colorado Public Radio:
Last week, a school board member proposed that advanced placement history classes be required to promote free enterprise and patriotism and be required to avoid classroom materials that encourage social strife or civil disobedience. Two high schools in Jefferson County closed Friday after dozens of teachers called in sick in protest.
According the online petition to be delivered to the School District:
Jeffco Public School Board has just proposed a change of curriculum stating that, “Materials should not encourage or condone civil disorder, social strife or disregard of the law. Instructional materials should present positive aspects of the United States and its heritage.”
This means that important parts of our history such as the Civil Rights Movement, Native American genocide, and slavery will not be taught in public schools. If these important lessons are not taught, children will not learn from them, and what will stop them from happening again? This is a severe form of censorship intended to keep the youth ignorant and easy to manipulate. I’m hoping to get enough signatures to prove that this is a public issue, so, please, if this is important to you, please sign. Do not let our youth grow up in ignorance; we all deserve the truth!

Thanks to theseacaptainsdaughter for dropping a link in my inbox.
Yesterday I spent 3+ hours protesting with more than 400 students that go to my school alone. That doesn’t include the other high schools that participated in the Jeffco district. It got more publicity than we were expecting and we’re grateful for that, but to keep this going would be great. If you agree and are against the censorship of AP US History classes please click on the link and sign the petition.
I fervently hope your efforts to protect your history education are successful. I’ve noticed a lot of the articles are trying to pretend that “kids just want to skip class”, and I think it’s disrespectful and dismissive. The petition is almost at its goal, so I hope people continue to sign it.
… and they canceled this show because?!? I miss it so much.
Roman post surgery (I think)
Sorry for the bad quality
I will never let myself scroll past a picture of Walt and not reblog it. I feel like I’d be dishonoring him, and he’s just done so much for me that it’s just not right.
Bless this man for enriching my childhood.

I just realized that the reason ghosts say Boo! is because it’s a latin verb
they’re literally saying ‘I alarm/I am alarming/I do alarm!!
if it comes from the latin word, they’re actually saying “I’M YELLING!” which is even cuter
do they speak latin because it’s a dead language
