The Incredibly Offensive Florida Standards

From the Florida Department of Education web site.

"Examine the various duties and trades performed by slaves (e.g., agricultural 
work, painting, carpentry, tailoring, domestic service, blacksmithing, 
Benchmark Clarifications: 
Clarification 1: Instruction includes how slaves developed skills which, in some instances, could be 
applied for their personal benefit."

By the way, I speak as an expert here (I teach American History at a community college).  This is a spectacular teaching standard.  If Florida teachers teach to this, their students will be profoundly better educated than most modern elites.
