I strongly believe that identity politics has no part in public education. Still, I explain in today’s video commentary that black history should be taught in schools… without the wokeness of modern times influencing the truth of history. Earlier this week, Gov. Ron DeSantis took flak from the Left for blocking an AP black history course.

In the video, I explain what was in the course that violated state law. Ironically, some Democrats, even African American ones, agreed with him. You won’t hear that in very many places. I’ll share what one person said and offer a contrasting view of why black history should be a staple of public education.

There is only one common thing that unites all Americans together. Over the last decade, some have succeeded in achieving a war on high achievement and the American dream that could come with disastrous results for our society, economy, and government. In turn, eroding the first principle of America’s unity.

First, we have to ask, what is the American dream? Then, we can discern how it’s being threatened.
