  •  Not just Texas but ALL U. S. Textbooks !!! (9+ / 0-)

    While I thank Ms. Bell-Metereau and wish her success with her candidacy, I do not think she has gone quite far enough.

    "Extremist members of the elected, non-paid Texas State Board of Education have hijacked textbook selection and curriculum requirements for future generations of Texas school children..."

    That is only a small part of the story.

    Because Texas adopts textbooks state-wide based upon these wingnut decisions and other states adopt textbooks district-by-district, major textbook publishers rewrite their books to win Texas adoption.

    It isn't just future generations of Texas children, but ALL children in the United States.

    We ALL suffer because of the wingnuts.

    This message needs to be spread to every parent in the country.

    "When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean -- neither more nor less."
