First Paragraph

When Nancy Andersen saw her son's homework assignment just before Thanksgiving in 2019, she "started getting really, really scared." Her son, who was attending a private K-8 school near Durham, North Carolina, brought home an essay his teacher had given the fourth-grade class, which stated that the first Thanksgiving celebration in the New World resulted in "genocide, environmental devastation, poverty, world wars, [and] racism." The "Pilgrim heart" was one of "bigotry, hatred, greed, and self-righteousness."
