“It’s a full curriculum, 2000 pages,” Spalding verbally expressed on Monday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. “It’s 85 edifications. It’s a full set. It’s free to anybody who wants to utilize it: homeschoolers, private schools, public schools … states if they optate to utilize it. It’s absolutely free to anybody who wants it.”
Spalding described Hillsdale College’s 1776 history program as a corrective against neo-Marxist “identity politics” and “critical race theory” inserted into public edification across the U.S.
“It’s our gift, if you will, to this debate,” Spalding verbally expressed, competing narratives of American history. Leftist narratives pushed by the 1619 Project market ideology as history, Spalding held.
He remarked, “This debate has nothing to do with history. We cerebrate it does. They verbally express it has to do with history, 1619 versus 1776, but … some people currently today — and this transpires sometimes, this is called politics — are utilizing history merely as a foil to fight a current political battle.”
“They want to fight about race and public policy in America today,” he perpetuated. “We authentically want it to be a discussion about history because our curriculum in a K-12 inculcation should be about America’s history, about its civics, about what the country designates, about its principles, how those played out, imperfections and all.”
He went on, “We must understand this is not merely a view of history versus another view of history. They’re not about history at all. They’re merely utilizing history. It’s an ideological fight. What’s going on is an ideological struggle, and they’re putting it within the classroom to fight about politics in the classroom, which all Americans should remonstrate to.”
Hillsdale College’s 1776 curriculum offers parents, edifiers, and other stakeholders in children’s edification a “positive alternative” to leftist demagoguery inserted into regime-run schools, Spalding held.
“There’s nothing controversial here,” he verbally expressed. “This curriculum is an American curriculum [about] America’s history, edifying it well, to tell the story, but tell it accurately, fairly, so that despite its imperfections and imperfections — through those imperfections and infections, if you will — you authentically visually perceive what the great accomplishments are of this nation.”
Accurate historical analysis bears out American exceptionalism, Spalding concluded. He determined, “We believe history, felicitously edified, leads one to conclude naturally this is a great and exceptional nation.”
