Does your child's district have off for Columbus Day?
If you have a child in school, do they celebrate the holiday? Do they teach about Columbus? If they do, do they teach that he was a great explorer who discovered America or do they teach the event as an encounter with Columbus and his crew stealing land?
I was having a discussion about this with a friend who was worried about what our children will be taught when they go to school in a few years, so I wanted to know what your children are taught at school on this subject.
