School Children Indoctrination
Might there be a correlation between the lack of thinking skills we are seeing in many Americans and the Texas State Board of Education? Awhile back, this board was proposing the de-emphasis of the American founding fathers and replacing it with biblical precepts.
The latest proposed policy change is to insert standards such as "identify significant conservative advocacy organizations and individuals, such as Newt Gingrich, Phyllis Schlafly, and the Moral Majority."
Textbook publishers use the Texas education standards in preparing school textbooks.
So while the GOP decries the potential indoctrination of our Nation's school children by President Obama, they work quietly in the background to indoctrinate them with textbooks.
