You can ban history but never erase it

The new Texas Seanate Bill 3 states that public school educators must teach "the history of white supremacy" including slavery, the Ku Klux Klan, and ways in which the white supremacist hate group was "morally wrong."

Because prejudice, discrimination and murder isn't a moral problem. It's a lifestyle choice.

Things you hate will become children's obsession before you know it
That bill, and IMO, the entire Texas legislature that wrote it is screwed up big time.

Are you sure you characterized it right?

[@479686,MistyCee] It was included in the bill oh, but the portion that was passed on to the Senate has glaring admissions, this among them. That's how I read it.
[@627992,Graylight] I read the bills earlier and I wish I hadn't. I either posted or replied about it here.

Regardless of what's being picked to include or exclude, imo, the legislature ought to be more general and let professional educators define the curriculum. Telling them what documents must be included isn't much better than telling them what documents can't.

That bill actually is part of an effort in Texas to stop any requirements on teaching about race.

[quote] Sec. 21.4555. CIVICS TRAINING PROGRAM.....
(b) A civics training program developed under this section
must include training in:
(4) media literacy, including instruction on
[b][i][u]verifying information and sources[/u][/i][/b], identifying and responding to
logical fallacies, and identifying propaganda, as appropriate for
the grade level and consistent with the restrictions under Section

I think this was meant for SW. I'm sure Abbott has no clue what this means.

It also removes MLK, suffrage and Native American history from required curriculum.
