You were right on Castro, and any school, public or private, never would any of them teach some of the good things he did. It's all about making the US look great, the others look very bad, all the time, regardless. I'm making my kids discuss what they've learned in school when it comes to these things and I'm going to have them read Howard Zinn. For those reading this in horror, don't worry, I'll always discuss the criticisms of him and as always teach them to be objective. Chomsky is the truth. I keep trying to find something with him to disagree with and I can't seem to find it. You can thank and Anarchist and Orwell for influencing him. Good stuff.
