While I agree with the notion that the manuals should be much better, I'm not too concerned that the simplistic views will do much harm. Having taught seminary last year and finding that after years of primary and fhe most had no clue who were jacob and joseph and sam or which was the father and which was the son, lehi or nephi, and at the end of the year seemed that they didn't know much more, I'm confident that most wont remember the wrongs that have been taught and those who actually are intetested will search the issues more and get the fuller picture of things...

I hope the OP sends a copy of his post to the Apostles who have been interested in making sure that accurate and full info is taught.   Personally I do not want our children taught or having the opportunity to read ANYTHING that is less than the current complete accurate info that is available, including acknowledgement of alternatives that could be viable too.   

I agree that our children won't necessarily absorb it all or care, that isn't the point.   The point is that until and unless the Church spends the time and resources to fully teach all truth, there will always be members who feel betrayed (rightfully), and there will be adults teaching things we know to be inaccurate or at least not fully accurrate ---- neither of which should be acceptable to members or leaders.   If the Church is going to teach the bible, it needs to do so consistent with current biblical scholarship.
