    I just saw a clip about this on the news. They voted to include jefferson in the textbooks but also voted not to include james madison.

    It's obvious ideological bias. The right wing rings nuts have taken over.

    I look for a new publisher to compete with texas school book makers, soon.

    There should be a national boycott of texas school books.

    I'm not worried because I'm pretty sure that nowadays kids don't get educated according to the textbook anyways. Instead, I think they'll get educated according to whoever they talk to about the subject matter at home, in town, on forums, in chat rooms, and social networks. They'll also likely be more inclined to follow a website than a text book. So no worries here.

    If people want to discuss what a bunch of backwards hicks are trying to impose on the nation's young, disguised as education, what damn business of yours to attempt to silence them?

    You don't like 'em? Don't freakin' read 'em. Problem solved.

    "backward hicks"

    as opposed to brain dead obamabots in the NEA who push their neosocialist psychobabble on public school students?

    Backward Hicks at least don't cost us money
