"...Margret Spellings worked for six years as Mr. Bush's education adviser in Texas, pushing policies on early reading and student accountability. They became the model for the federal law, No Child Left Behind, that Spellings helped put together from the White House after Mr. Bush's election in 2000...."
Bush Taps Spellings For Education - CBS News
It's not only well documented but it's been repeatedly in the news for the last 10 years that conservatives have an anti-science agenda on everything from stem cell research to global warming to evolution and even vaccines.You claim that 2) the GOP wants to cherry pick what science is taught in schools and provide links saying that a representative from Texas proposed passing a bill that would require the federal spending on NSF to be “in the interests of the United States to advance the national health, prosperity, or welfare and to secure the national defense by promoting the progress of science.”
You assume that this represents the whole GOP, which doesn't make sense, and then go on to claim that this is somehow 'cherry picking' what will be taught. If this were to pass, it would do no such thing. A gross misuse of words on your part.
Don't make a strawman out of it. I specifically said, "Businesses who need an educated workforce are not going to locate in a city or state with an uneducated workforce." Take Toyota for example....The claim that 3) business will relocate from states where schools are allowed to teach certain religious classes is completely unsubstantiated, and providing links that show how there are not enough skilled workers in no way whatsoever helps your case.

Blah, blah, blah. In case you haven't noticed, the only one not providing a shred of evidence in this entire discussion is you.You claim that 4) this supposed lack of education brought about by the GOP's supposed attack on education, which so far is completely unsubstantiated, you claim that this will cause business to move or hire immigrants which will cause that state to lose jobs. A state does not lose jobs when hiring immigrants fyi.
And you have absolutely no shred of evidence to support your point.
Why were the standards lowered do you think? And it's complete folly to assume that students who are taught a few religious courses cannot think critically.
You have not shown anything where conservatives have "demonized teachers, defunded education and tried to dumb down the educational ciriculum" (great spelling btw) and it's up to you to provide evidence that they have. And that, if they have, that this is indicative of the entire GOP. You have shown none of either.
