Eh, Texas do your worst. American history is taught so badly as it is in this country that it will be hard for them to make it any worse.
And as I suspected:
Must-know figures could change for Texas students - Kansas City StarThe distinction has no impact on classroom time because teachers make their own plans, but teachers are guided by the board's standards, so could emphasize or de-emphasize historical figures in class depending on what the board says.
It's like Kansas.

Seriously, it was not long ago.. in fact a week ago, that conservatives were all up in arms for Obama trying to "indoctrinate" their children with his values, and yet here you have 2 states that are forcing right wing indoctrination down the throats of children and young people, instead of letting these young people decide for themselves..
talk about hypocrisy.... gezzz
they probably think that teaching that the world is round and not flat is a compromise to liberals.
And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?
Liberal republicans want religion taught in the classroom.
Liberal democrats want how-to sex-ed in kindergarten.
It is always conservative democrats and conservative republicans who compromise the fastest and come to the most reasonable agreements.
