America's founders believed civic education and historical knowledge would prevent tyranny

Who? The Republicans are the ones wanting to get back to basic education along with civics and history. All the Democrats want to teach is equity diversion and inclusion. Who cares if they can read or do math? They also always vote no on school choice.

The Republicans are the ones who want to fund private schools with taxpayer money.

You mean like that book not all boys are blue in middle schools? You know the one where the main character is a 9 year old who is raped by an adult family member. Goes in to graphic detail of anal rape. 
 

When exactly did it become a good thing for children to read graphic novels about rape, incest, and pedophilia? In what context is it ok for children to read about strap on dildo’s? 
 

What library were these books found in?

Provide a source or I must say your being very disingenuous, back up your comments or shut up!

The Republicans are trying to ban Civil War history by banning any book that would make someone feel bad.

History is not there to make you feel good.  It is there to learn from.

 

Here in Oklahoma, our governor is trying to ban all diversity and inclusivity programs.

What he doesn't seem to understand is that these are tutorial programs aimed at bringing marginalized students into the mainstream.  Oklahoma's schools are so badly funded that many students arrive at college unable to do sophomore-level high school work.  That has been made worse by covid, a disease that Trump (Republican) made worse.

When I went to high school, we were required to write a 50-page paper for senior-level high school English.  Many students arrive here, never having written two whole pages.  Diversity and inclusivity tutors teach students what the high schools should have taught and didn't - mostly due to too few teachers.

In my day, the high schools divided students into those with a reasonable chance at success and sent them to college-prep programs.  They sent those they deemed not worth the effort to shop and home-ec programs.  A student's life was decided for him when he first entered high school.  Diversity and inclusion tries to get around that by giving poor-performing students some extra help.  Ever sit in on a low-level class where the girl in front of you is talking about here career as a hooker and the boy behind you is talking about a drug deal that went bad?  That's what we have to deal with.  And Republicans are not helping.

The other choice is to send kids to a couple of additional years of high school (We call it "remedial work.") at their expense.  Our local remedial school is Northern Oklahoma College (aka "NOC - No Other Choice.")..  Tired of grappling with the intricacies of essay composition?
