Please read the bolded red pint......AND negate my last post

Since January, Republicans on the board have passed more than 100 amendments to the 120-page curriculum standards affecting history, sociology and economics courses from elementary to high school. The standards were proposed by a panel of teachers.

“We are adding balance,” said Dr. Don McLeroy, the leader of the conservative faction on the board, after the vote. “History has already been skewed. Academia is skewed too far to the left.”....

Battles over what to put in science and history books have taken place for years in the 20 states where state boards must adopt textbooks, most notably in California and Texas. But rarely in recent history has a group of conservative board members left such a mark on a social studies curriculum.

“I reject the notion by the left of a constitutional separation of church and state,” said David Bradley, a conservative from Beaumont who works in real estate. “I have $1,000 for the charity of your choice if you can find it in the Constitution.”

I am glad I do not have children, since this is something that will now be in effect for a DECADE. If you have children, please, teach them about the other side that will no longer be taught. This is f**king ridiculous, and I am so very tired of this state. History is written by the winner, and obviously, Texas and the Republicans here have been emigrated from Kansas and their superior educational system.
