Back in 2013 again

I have tried to communicate the fact that the current right-wing uprising against sane and humane education is a symptom of a defect in the American society perpetuated by the American school system. Yes, schools are responsible and the videos that I will post here and forthcoming are testimony to that fact, in part, at least for teachers using the materials that have been filtered through the State school board of Texas. Read the stories available on the influence on American school textbooks by Mel and Norma Gabler and watch the film below to know the power of their present day incarnation in Don McLeroy. Yes, schools bought the texts, teachers used the texts, and the texts influenced the way the future citizens sitting in classrooms think about the world and the meaning of good citizenship.
