Big Textbook Vote in Texas Today

The Texas State Board of Education is making the final votes today on their controversial social studies curriculum. This vote will have ramifications across the nations as most K–12 textbooks are written to appease the standards in Texas. The board members are not curriculum experts, but partisan politicians, and have produced a set of social studies standards that seeks to promote a sectarian political viewpoint. Some of you may remember their continual monkeying around with the science standards—no offense to actual monkeys. But it takes some some chutzpa to remove Thomas Jefferson from history standards.
