  • Very Very true, its scary what is to come with this too, especially with how people understand what our country is based on, and our history, since it is morphed so much in many history books today. History should be taught the way it actually happened, not decided on what should be taught and not, and what should be emphisised and what should be ignored. Its dangerous when history is changed.

  • I absolutely agree and with our "one-size fits all" education it's a MAJOR problem.

  • Well, that "the new deal" ended the depression, for one... More of it isn't outright lying, it's slanting... giving the impression of something to help form the child's opinion and views... or discussing a topic without presenting both sides.

    I have never been taught that the New Deal ended the depression...what are you talking about? As for slanting, you said LYING...Which is what the Texas Education Board is doing. They are conservatives.....lying about history, slanting,,,,,

    The message was loud and clear when I went to school! We read the "Grapes of Wrath", studied Dorthea Lange's photography and then learned how the great FDR ended the depression with the new deal.

    You said lying too, and most of what the texas school board did was lean things back to the right a little... include reaganomics and discussing unintended consequences of government action, etc...

    The outright lies can be found and corrected... it's the overall feel and slant to the material that is dangerous because parent's don't always catch on to it.

    Is this meant as a joke, or do you really think I'm a crazy conspiracy theorist?
