Air-brushing the important bits out of history

What would be a good way to distort your childs education? Re-write what they are taught and leave out important bits. But what are the important bits? That is where the debate is. Its been revealed that the new curriculum is removing references to BC & AD in the schools ..

The nations newspapers today revealed that the PC term - which do not mention Christ - for dates BC and AD in the new national history curriculum was an act of Christian cleansing, church leaders said yesterday. BCE (Before Common Era), BP (Before Present) and CE (Common Era) are the new neutral terms to replace the historical terms BC (Before Christ) and AD (Anno Domini).

Eminent Australian Historian Professor Edwin Judge ... himself a supporter of the new curriculum described the move by the Australian Curriculum and Assesment Reporting Authority as "vandalism".
