http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-17144065 That is low!! If I was one of the parents, I would write a letter to the teacher's union involved in the scheme.

One never hears about classes here in the U.S. or in other republics about the benefits of monarchy.

American schools try to teach respect for other cultures in a variety of ways: food, dress, music, religion, etc.   Why are they silent about the benefits of constitutional monarchy as seen in Great Britain, Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, etc?   Isn't that an equally valid way to run a country?  

This topic occasionally comes up with friends or peers.   If I tell them that I prefer constitutional monarchy, they usually look at me incredulously until I list off the countries that have constitutional monarchies.   This tends to stun them for a moment because they know that these are very lawful, civilized, and decent societies: not some backward place.  

I think that most people have never given the issue any thought partly because the schools have failed to be truly multicultural.  Then where else are they going to hear about it?

Never trust your young children to a government run institution...

Unfortunately from what I've heard from a few of my homeschooling Catholic monarchist friends, most existing home school history curricula in the US are fervently Americanist, so that's only a solution if the parents are interested in an alternative, which I think it's safe to say most American homeschoolers are not.  I suspect many of them would even criticize the public schools for not pushing "Founding Father" idolatry enough these days.

To be fair to the "government run institutions," it was in a suburban Indianapolis public school as a seventh-grader that I read Massie's Nicholas & Alexandra, the book that arguably changed my life...

Hopefully I'll be in the teaching profession soon for Latin (leaning toward private schools) and intend to present monarchy positively whenever the topic should arise.

So, the teachers' union in the UK is just as flamboyantly Marxist as the ones here? That's sad.

Returning to the original post, that was not just low, that was desperate. And I am fairly sure has been discussed here before. Anyway, a president is never controversial according to these people. I wish though that they would explain why a monarch always is. Particularly a monarch who, as nobody questions, is supported by a huge majority of the people and would sail home in a referendum. Not something that many presidents could be sure of.
