  1. SOP in Utah and pretty much the whole rest of the USA to “Sanitize” inconvenient history in public school materials.

    Look at the current Texas State Board of Education proposal to call slavery [“Involuntary relocation”](https://www.texastribune.org/2022/06/30/texas-slavery-involuntary-relocation/) for example.

    Sanitizing history for “feel good” or some notion of fake “rah-rah” patriotism as many of a certain political bent love is not just a lie but a damned lie.

    Teach the **whole** truth and allow kids to think and decide for themselves.
