Mao Quote

The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) “Kids’ Zone” website used a quote from mass murderer Chairman Mao Zedong yesterday as their “quote of the day”. After Buzzfeed reported on the quote and a hailstorm from Twitter, the quote was quickly removed and replaced with an Abraham Lincoln quote, before the section was completely removed from the page all together. NCES Press Secretary Daren Briscoe issued this statement after the incident

“The Kids’ Zone website, hosted by the National Center of Education Statistics, earlier today featured a poorly chosen quote, intended to highlight the importance of teaching and learning, in the ‘Quote of the Day’ feature. This feature, which automatically generates one education-related quote per day from a database of quotes last updated in 2007, has been temporarily suspended pending a review of the database’s contents.”

This is just another example of our education system “accidentally” pushing communism on America’s children. How the people who are in charge of educating our youth could possibly quote a man on the same plateau as Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler, only to chalk it up to “a poor choice” is beyond me. If we find out about this many incidents, how many more go unnoticed? Do you know what your children are being taught in school?
