ACLU Asks :Is Texas rewriting history?

 The Texas State Board of Education (SBOE) has released new ideologically-tainted standards for Texas' public school textbooks.

They're out to impose one narrow-minded point of view on the content of textbooks used by millions of students. A 30-day comment period is underway—and everyone in America is invited to give their input.

Send your public comment opposing the extremist takeover of textbooks that will be studied by millions of students.

We need you to act—because the impact of what happens in Texas will be felt all across the country. Because Texas purchases tens of millions of textbooks every year, it has outsized influence on the content of textbooks used all over America. In fact, between 45 and 47 states use textbooks based on Texas' curriculum.

The Texas SBOE plan includes such revisions as: ending a requirement that students examine why our Founding Fathers insisted on the separation of church and state, marginalizing the importance of historic campaigns to extend the rights of African-Americans, Latinos and women, and downplaying the role of traditional historic figures in America—while emphasizing the role of right-wing ideologues in the country.

The ACLU is fighting to stop this right-wing takeover of the content of public school textbooks.

Send your public comment opposing the extremist takeover of textbooks that will be studied by millions of students.

This is a vitally-important issue that will effect the education of a generation of students.

Thanks for making your voice heard,


Anthony D. Romero
Executive Director
ACLU
