Texas Approves Textbook Changes

Finally, one for the Founding Fathers and freedom. Heard that changes include more emphasis on states rights, clarification of the importance of religion in the lives of our founders and emphasis on the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Hope this is the start of a nationwide campaign to take back our education system from the progressives and socialists.

AUSTIN, Tex., (AP) — The State Board of Education on Friday adopted new social studies and history guidelines with a conservative bent for Texas primary school classrooms.

The standards lay out how political events and figures will be taught to about 4.8 million schoolchildren in Texas and beyond for the next decade. They were adopted after a final showdown by two 9-to-5 votes along party lines, after Democrats’ and moderate Republicans’ efforts to delay a final vote failed.

The standards, which have prompted national debate, will be used by publishers who often develop materials for other states based on those passed in Texas.
