It doesn't help those students or our country to ignore something that's been a problem here for centuries. It's important history.

It is essential to teach our children real American history and not a sanitized version. We want them educated!

We can't ignore history no matter how uncomfortable it makes us.

Understanding people's biases and beliefs help you to better understand their decisions. To not educate about bias is, in itself, inherently bias.

Our kids need to learn about how to get along with everyone, no matter what their identity or background. And hopefully this kind of learning will help kids from every background feel welcome and included in the schools and in the community.

A lot of kids are learning the wrong side of bias from their parents, if THEY are biased or bigoted. They need the whole story in order to decide for themselves.

Bias is central to decisions you make on a daily basis. It can determine how you react to people and situations. It is extremely important to know what bias means and how your personal biases affect your judgements. It is NOT teaching people specific biases, it gives kids a tool to navigate fairly.

It amazes me how little some people know about actual history and what has happened in the past. People alive today are not responsible for past actions but they need to know so that they can understand why some are still hated. Jews, Mexicans, Blacks, Muslins??? Hated by some for what?

It teaches valuable positions about how there isn't continuity today, even though it's perceived...& things were even more divided between groups in the past than they are now.

Ummm it’s not the school's business. They need to stick to basic education. Period.

It's nonsense. They're just teaching kids to feel like victims. This topic is one to be discussed in a high school sociology class. I mean discussed, not indoctrinate.

Having a bias system share about bias will not work.

Teachers cannot replace parents in the development of their children's beliefs about how to treat people. Also, the school is wasting their time explaining the victim's perspective when anyone that's experienced bias against them already knows it sucks. Better to focus on the Pledge of Allegiance

No, not as a lens to view the world. It is an artificial construct, and not the only possible way to understand your experiences. However, I think it is fine if discussion of bias arises necessarily from the subject material, for high school studies.

I do not dispute that some issues of race occur, but I fear the governments inability to effectively teach our kids anything except the three R's...and even there we're learning that this can be relarive.

I can’t see why anybody would want to be ruled by modern liberals anymore at this point.

If you're so enamored with Idaho, move there. It's what an adult would do. Sadly, we're not dealing with adults. The child would inconvenience the majority to get It's way. Hint: the border will never be moved, quit wasting our time. This adult is staying in Oregon. The children can move.
