Our view on education: Texas school board seeks to rewrite your kids' textbooks

Because of Texas' massive presence in the textbook market nationwide, the state board's idiosyncratic view of history is likely to show up in what's taught in schools across the USA for the next decade.

Among the other changes in the current draft: Downgrading the place of Thomas Jefferson among the Founders because of board members' dislike of his support for separation of church and state.

It doesn't matter whether something happened or not. In an Orwellian move they're just going to write history they way they wished it had happened.

This is a strong argument for online textbooks for public schools... or just using the wikipedia - at least you know that it could be all just made up by bogans.
