Passport to …

Here is a screen shot of a page from the NYCDOE Passport to Social Studies for Digital Learning social studies curriculum, for 1st grade.

I hadn’t realized that the NYCDOE unilaterally promoted the Palestinian Territories to a country called Palestine. Or perhaps anytime that Israel is mentioned by the DOE, equal time must be given to the Palestine?

Why do this? Why not write about bartering in literally any other part of the world?
