    but I don't see how that could work.  By the exact same logic, the wackos on the TX BoE could argue that the current books are illegal because they don't mention Limbaugh and Schlafly.

    If you don't help us turn Texas blue, then you deserve whatever we do to your kids' textbooks.

    •  Not that but how (0+ / 0-)

      you mention Rush et. al.

      How about making parents BUY text books? With the print on demand system books should be affordable, and each volume limited to the class it's designed for. Particularly compared to the science/math cover everything door stops.

        "affordable."  Affordable to me, an upper-middle class future father, may be very different than affordable to a poor family.  Even if they went for, say, 10-20% of the cost of paper textbooks, they would still by far out of reach of many families.  This would be a gross violation of the universal education principle we've valued for most of the nation's history.

        If you don't help us turn Texas blue, then you deserve whatever we do to your kids' textbooks.
