Think you know American history? Not until you've been through a Louisiana school you don't, you tie-dyed, tree-hugging socialist.
For proof, just see if you can answer these questions, based on a textbook they're using in Louisiana's taxpayer-funded voucher schools.

A) They went without bathing.
B) They wore dirty, ragged, unconventional clothing.
C) They deliberately broke all codes of politeness or manners.
D) All of the above.
2. Rock music played an important part in the hippie movement and had great influence over the hippies. Why were rock musicians such a negative influence on American youth?
