    Ya know.. this is what's wrong with our country these days. On page 2 of this thread I indicated exactly what this bill says, and people (Such as you DD) are still suggesting it says something different?

    The most fundamental local level, in this case, is the school district. Therefore the state is superseding local authority to tell school districts what they have to do. This same legislature also voided a Memphis and Nashville law that adds sexual orientation as a protected class for workplace equality, thus superseding municipal authority.

    Considering this same legislature passed a silly and symbolic bill saying the Feds shouldn't tell them what to do, it's hypocritical of them to override local law in pursuit of their antigay agenda.

    It's nothing but big government intrusion into local government. And if you support it, then you support a form of big government telling local government what to do.

    and if true then I would agree. I would not support this type of intrusion.

    Wow, I just don't even know where to start. If it was about attraction she would have said he wasn't cute. As for you, only you know if the lack of attraction is due to "facial features" or skin color.

    OK, now I'm offended. Women are not a collection of body parts put together for your amusement.

    Tennessee Tea Party Groups Issue Demand On How Textbooks Portray 'Minority Experience In History'

    A coalition of Tennessee Tea Party groups has formulated a list of "demands" focused on the state's educational curriculum and political agenda that they want the state's legislature to heed this session.

    As far as their educational concerns, the panel writes that they want to "compel the teaching of students in Tennessee the truth regarding the history of our nation and the nature of its government," a failure that they claimed had been brought about by "neglect and outright ill will," The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

    Hal Rounds, spokesman for the group, recently claimed at news conference that there was "an awful lot of made-up criticism about, for instance, the Founders intruding on the Indians or having slaves or being hypocrites in one way or another."

    As a result, the Tea Party organizations argue, there should be "no portrayal of minority experience in the history which actually occurred shall obscure the experience or contributions of the Founding Fathers, or the majority of citizens, including those who reached positions of leadership."
