Hillsdale College thinks Putin is the preeminent world leader and why you should care.

 What's a little murder from world leaders? Not much if you are Hillsdale College. Why should you care what they think? Well, they are creating Florida's new civics curriculum and provide the curriculum to a growing number of charter schools here as well.     

From their latest Imprimis

By American standards, Putin’s respect for the democratic process has been fitful at best. He has cracked down on peaceful demonstrations. Political opponents have been arrested and jailed throughout his rule. Some have even been murdered—Anna Politkovskaya, the crusading Chechnya correspondent shot in her apartment building in Moscow in 2006; Alexander Litvinenko, the spy poisoned with polonium-210 in London months later; the activist Boris Nemtsov, shot on a bridge in Moscow in early 2015. While the evidence connecting Putin’s own circle to the killings is circumstantial, it merits scrutiny. Yet if we were to use traditional measures for understanding leaders, which involve the defense of borders and national flourishing, Putin would count as the pre-eminent statesman of our time.


These are the people that Richard Corcoran wants to make our civics education.

He says teachers can't be trusted not to indoctrinate students, and he turns to them.

If it makes you shudder, then you aren't the only one.
