The board took a preliminary vote to make a number of changes to curriculum, including scrapping mention of Clinton and Hellen Keller from sections on citizenship and removing a phrase referring to the “optimism of the many immigrants who sought a better life in America.” They also voted to reinsert references to “Judeo-Christian” law, Moses’ influence on the writing of the US’s founding documents, and a reference to the “heroism” of the Alamo’s defenders.
Despite what the article may lead you to believe this affects classrooms in the entire country, not just Texas. Textbook publishers don’t want to publish more than one version so they always print and publish ALL of the entrie country’s textbooks based on the whims of the Texas Board of (piss poor, this is why people assume rednecks are stupid) Education. So s Texas goes backwards away from empirical facts and into a jumble of mysticism and ignorance, so do all of the public schools in the entire country.
The next generation will think Moses was a founding father of the United States so you can forget about a useful timeline of history being taught to them. If psycho-mysticism passes for history just try and wrap your mind around what science and engineering will look like. Kiss medical advancement and functioning planes, trains and automobiles good-bye!
Weep for the future, people. Weep.
