Something tells me they will gloss over the threats, violence, vandalism etc.

[T]he progressives’ efforts usually begin in the public school system, where they can shape the worldviews of the upcoming generation of American leaders.
That is what’s happening in Connecticut where Big Labor is once again pushing legislation that would “encourage” schools to teach labor history and law. “Big Labor,” in this case, refers to the American Federation of Teachers, the AFL-CIO, the SEIU and the rest of the usual suspects in the Nutmeg State.
According to Raised Bill No. 220, schools would be asked to spend precious class time discussing the history of organized labor, the collective bargaining process and the need for legal protections in the workplace.
Since Big Labor’s previous attempts to slip their agenda into Connecticut schools’ curriculum have failed, the cagey unionists have put a special twist on their latest effort. The union-backed legislation would also have schools teach “the history of free market capitalism and entrepreneurialism and their role in the growth of the American and world economies.”
It’s an obvious attempt to pacify critics who don’t want left-wing unionism taught in the classroom. Besides, one would hope that Connecticut schools are already teaching capitalism and entrepreneurship to students. And if they’re not, then taxpayers should demand a much bigger fix than some dopey little lesson added on to the labor history unit.
