    Wow, this seams to happen all to often. This comes down to parents identifying these mistakes in their children’s studies, then reporting them to their respective school boards. If the school board does nothing them vote them out. If that doesn’t work send letters to your local Representative and or Senators . We have to complain just like the crybaby Libs to get anything done.

    Actually, the amendment, like the rest of the bill of rights is quite clear in what it says, no interpretation necessary.
    Especially by the supreme court or some doofus writing a “workbook”.
