Here's a list of a few existing copyright curricula we highlight (not
exhaustive) that may be repurposed for this:

You're still just arguing about the correctness of the material. I agree
that this curriculum is stupid and misleading, but that doesn't explain
the WMF should care enough to make a statement, or even continue
discussion, about it.
One alternative option would be to work with the Education folks and
create Wikimedia centric lesson plans for teachers to use that share the
values people are expressing. These can be linked on education outreach
pages, distributed to chapters, etc. Or general handouts can be made that
explain these concepts ad the linked on
. This is a nice option
because it is pro-active and community driven. If some one does approach
the WMF externally asking for support on this issue, they have the
materials to then work with.
