The liars at the “Discovery Institute” which, I remind you, has yet to discover a single thing, have planted some of their shills on the Texas State Board of Education. Why should you care? They chose Texas for a reason: Texas and California are the two biggest purchasers of text books. If you can get them to buy something, lots of other states have little choice but to follow along because their textbooks are just minor tweaks of the California and/or Texas editions.
So this really could be bad news for kids all over the country, not just Texas.
