New York Times Opinion - Politicized Curriculum in Texas

It would seem that some minor changes are being made. But not enough. I hope pressure will be maintained to stop this outrageous attempt to manipulate and gloss over history and facts. I wish Howard Zinn were still around. The funny thing is that I stumbled across that 'reader opinion' in my search for a new curriculum for my daughters' upcoming school year. Anyone have suggestions please help me!!!! She will be in 5th grade.

By the way here is another interesting read. Since many textbooks are printed in the South and are influenced by publishers in the South this isn't something the rest of country can afford to ignore. What's next? Mandatory Creationism? I'll stick with evolution, thank you.
