Although climate change denial was removed from textbooks, our school board has stubbornly stuck to it’s guns on including Christianity and Judeo-Christian values (Moses specifically) as the inspiration for America’s form of government.
Zack Kopplin, wonderkind of the creationism textbook wars, is livetweeting the the Social Studies textbook hearings. He is enduring the inanity like a champ, so you don’t have to. Aron couldn’t make it as he is on the last leg of his journey on his motorcycle across the deserts of West Texas. This part in […]
