Maine School Update

It's a .pdf file so I can't easily post an excerpt, but a reader forwarded some information about the Maine school curriculum from their superintendent. According to the document, World History, which is taught in 9th grade, does indeed teach the history of a variety of cultures. So, who knows...

UPDATE: Allen Brill has a reponse from the plaintiff's attorney:

The ninth grade class is an elective, so students who choose not to take ninth grade world history will have never have learned about a part of the world, such as Iraq, where they might be asked to fight and die.
