John sends this story about how the NEA is saying that teachers should mark the 9-11 anniversary by showing tolerance, not suggesting any group was responsible, and blaming American for the WWII Japanese internment. It would be better to say nothing; even first graders understand the situation better than that. If they teach the Japanese internment, they should teach the full facts, such as who ordered it, why, how they were treated, how they were compensated, etc. But they won't.
