As New York gears up for the first 11 September anniversary, educators are at war over what the young minds of America should be encouraged to learn from the hijack attacks.

The battle has been drawn across familiar lines: Educators who regard the experience as an opportunity to instill a broader understanding of the world, Islam, the benefits of tolerance, diversity and notions of global responsibility, against conservatives who regard the event as an opportunity to encourage patriotism and moral certainty.

Last week the American National Education Association, that country's largest teachers' union, came under so much pressure for suggesting that students should be given lessons on tolerance on the anniversary of the attacks that it has removed the material from its internet site. Among the items for discussion listed were the 'historical instances of American intolerance' so that the US can avoid 'repeating terrible mistakes'.
