    you are looking at them trying to balance a skewed history that is Eurocentric and based on Kos demographics what most of us grew up on.

    And they are trying to maintain it with current events that include those that are diverse. The fact it is culture driven means there will be shifting of the vignettes such as this one to another notable. It also means textbook makers get bank.

    They should do less vignette sort of features of diverse persons and include people that are minorities that have been historically relevant. But because our culture is Eurocentric we have most of those that would fit that profile that have moved mountains in civil rights. And that can not be encouraged. Except in February.

    Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance.
