I had to slaughter the entire notion that the Middle Ages are the “Dark Ages” and that they were horribly ignorant, terrible times in History class. I had to debunk the idea that Martin Luther was a Saint and that The Roman Catholic Church is and always has been a cesspool of evil, corruption, and greed. And now I’m trying to debunk the idea that Western Europe is still responsible and should pay for its actions during the Age of Exploration.
The Toronto District School Board needs to get its curriculum together. This is pathetic.
