MOD in shock horror 1984 history rewrite

It’s good to see that teachers are resisting overt propaganda in schools. In an attempt to bring up a generation of young people with misconceptions about the Iraq war the the MOD has prepared lesson plans with their own version of events. Luckily instead of blindly walking into the classroom and teaching this 1984 style history, teachers have questioned the lessons on the grounds that they don’t allow students to be taught with objectivity and balance. It is vital that we don’t allow the classroom to become an extension of the media and I am particularly glad this issue has been highlighted because while genocide continues in our names we should loudly proclaim that we know why our country wages war, what it seeks and what the real losses are and we should not accept their distorted version of events.
