Washington, D.C. sixth graders were told to compare George W. Bush and Adolf Hitler for a homework assignment.
“Now that we have read about two men of power who abused their power in various ways, we will compare and contrast them and their actions,” the assignment reads. “Please refer to your texts, ‘Fighting Hitler – A Holocaust Story’ and ‘Bush: Iraq War Justified Despite No WMD’ to compare and contrast former President George W. Bush and Hitler.”
Parents complained. “In a written statement, D.C. Public Schools said that the teacher acknowledged poor judgment and will apologize to students,” reports USA Today.
