A new elementary school will open in Onslow County Tuesday.

Located on Gum Branch road in between Jacksonville and Richlands -- Stateside is the first "themed" school in the county.

The school will mold its curriculum around a national pride theme, with a goal to gain connectivity between subjects.

Almost 550 students are enrolled at Stateside.

    At first glance this sounds great, but as some psoters below have commented, what kind of pride is the public school pushing. There is My kinda pride: in American values, The Flag, the Military that sacrifices everyday for the freedoms that we have, "mom, apple pie, and downtown Mayberry".....But I am afraid that our chilluns is going to get a new kinda pride indoctrinated upon them, one that I wouldn't like.

    . . .um, thanks but no thanks. I think I will continue to keep my children in private school where I know what they are taught.

    Don't like the idea one bit. This is not good american practice. Pride is not always a good thing, it can make you get in trouble.

    I bet this does not mean what we think it does. Please elaborate on a curriculum that focuses on national pride. Every state school is focusing on diversity with has turned into the antithesis of national pride. How do they get permission from the state to change or as I said is this just diversity by another name?

    This is not a new idea. It was proven to work in Germany in the 1930s. Fill their heads with pro-American propoganda, huh.
