Idiocy like this can only propogate itself.

This would seem to be part of the "new philosophy of mankind". In times past, the wise teachers taught controversial history as a means of ensuring that it would not be repeated. Today, many Baby Boomers have in their minds that they are a different, more highly evolved human without the foibles and weaknesses of past generations. They are, in Thomas Sowell's words, "The Anointed Ones" who have no need to learning from the past because they are free from "original sin" and would never, ever be so foolish as their evolutionary predecessors (i.e., parents). Sad, because the wise teachers are right, "Those who fail to learn from the past are doomed to repeat it."

because their balanced treatment of the topic would have directly challenged what was taught in some local mosques."

Never teach a balanced version of history to the unbalanced. they just might explode.............literally.

History, they say is written by the victors and it appears the teachers have chosen their side.

'The report said teachers feared confronting "anti-semitic sentiment and Holocaust denial among some Muslim pupils".'

They are unwilling to CONFRONT bigotry and lies flowing from the houses of hate (the mosques)?

Isn't it their jobs as educators to educate, not keep these people in a 7th ideology that simply cannot exist in a civilized society?

Why don't they just start ordering their textbooks from Saudi Arabia, which refer to Jews as the offspring of pigs or dogs or monkeys? There is an equal amount of truth between the lies and garbage printed in the Saudi textbooks and the hateful and disgusting rhetoric of Holocaust denial.

The liberals are always the first to accuse conservatives of censorship. Of course, when they censor to avoid "offense", it doesn't count.

"In another department, the Holocaust was taught despite anti-semitic sentiment among some pupils, but the same department deliberately avoided teaching the Crusades at Key Stage 3 (for 11- to 14-year-olds) because their balanced treatment of the topic would have directly challenged what was taught in some local mosques."

Wouldn't it be nice if Christians (the overwhelming majority in this country) were given the same consideration. Won't happen, of course. The teachers aren't afraid of Christians...

When offending people for whatever reason became a sin, you get weird results. This is one of them.

Those who do not remember, and learn, from history are doomed to repeat it.

No lessons on the Holocaust, Crusades, slave trade 'in case pupils are offended'

Okay, okay. But can we still wear our Dracula outfits and impale some muslums come Halloween?

It's probably just as well if they don't teach the Crusades in the public schools, since for as long as I can remember they have been presented as wicked Christian aggression against the nice, harmless Muslims.

"...dropping controversial subjects from history lessons - such as the Holocaust and the Crusades..."

Sorry! It's History! Ya gotta teach it to the little worms whether they like the truth or not!

Unless, of course, 'political-correctness' is paramount. In that case, we don't have to teach them anything that happenned from 650 A.D. 'till today!

Teach them how to write on mud slabs with sticks, and proceed to bird-feather quills and goat skins.

No more cars, phones, electricity, indoor plumbing - whoops, got ahead of them there.

In other words, teach them to live ignorant and in squalor. 'Eat with your right hand, and wipe with your left' .............. FRegards
