    How will kids in South Jersey find their way to Philly if the schools aren’t required to teach about Commodore Barry?

    Since 1967? But I was in school then, and I never heard of a “Commodore Barry Day”! And… Arbor Day? Aw, c’mon.

    A previous gov. vetoed a bill aimed at requiring public schools to teach about the Holocaust, for the same reason.

    I kinda don’t think John Barry is more important a lesson for 21st century kids than Teresenstadt.
