Don’t Mess With Texas (Textbooks)

The News:  Austin (May 21) -- The Texas State Board of Education adopted a new social studies and history curriculum that amends or waters down the teaching of the civil rights movement, slavery, and America’s relationship with the U.N. among other subjects.  For the next 10 years textbook publishers will develop materials for other states based on those approved in Texas for the next decade.  The final vote was 9-5 on each set of standards.  Educators have blasted the proposed curriculum for politicizing education. Other educators replied, “where YOU been Bubba?”
