Let us brainwash your kids!

This is a great site (www.kids.gov). I don’t know why it took me so long to find it. Now, it’s not as bad as my title suggests. There is a whole lot of great educational content here for kids of all ages. It seems like a bulk of the content, though, is for K-6.

I was pointed in the direction of this site by an article in the December, 2004 issue of Wired (p. 46). They point out the more insiduous sites that the government has for kids: National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), FBI Kids, National Security Agency and the Central Security Service (NSA/CSS), and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

These are a combination of interesting historical content and scary propaganda (see the NRO song list), but are definately a must see for techie educators.
