    4th grader daughter's social studies homework.

    My wife was helping my daughter with her social studies. One of the questions she had to choose an African country and do a small report on it. She decided on doing the report on Kenya. One of the questions she had to answer is "What is a common last name for someone from Kenya?"

    Without assistance she answered "OBAMA"

    Good for her. If she puts that in her paper, however, she'll probably get sent home and you will get a visit from the Secret Service.

    There are benefits of a private church run conservative school!

    Smart girl! I see she's been paying attention!

    When I went back to college a few years ago one of the classes I was required to take, as part of my degree program was social studies. Had lots of fun in the class, the instructor was staunchly liberal and I am very conservative. The main thing was as part of my military career as an aircrew member plus being stationed in two overseas locations I had a somewhat different perspective as to what was in the textbook and the real world conditions I observed. Made for some lively discussions in the classroom.

    Those that wright and edit textbooks often have a liberal agenda and overtime history is being rewritten.
