I am the native mother of 2 native children. We do not live on a reservation or near one. I grew up attending public schools which did not teach Native American or Chicano or Mexican American histories from any other point of view except the white POV. I do not want this for my children. I want to send them to a school where they can learn the truth, whether it fosters good American citizenship or not. If I can not find a public school to teach the truth, then I'm seriously thinking about homeschooling. However, that would put a great financial burden on my family since I would have to quit my full time job. Also, I would like my kids to socialize with their peers. Can you compile a list of top schools that are good for teaching my ancestors true history, not the version which has been rewritten by the US Government?
