this is a link to a story in texas. here are some questions: (1) how can something like this happen in america? this sounds like the religious fanatics i’ve read in memoirs of afghanis and iranians; (2) who really thinks the students who go through the texas educational system will be better prepared for college?; (3) will texas teachers get merit pay for the number of students who speak in tongues? (4) if you’re a parent in texas, are you not dying to get out??? (5) if you’re a superintendent in texas and don’t go along with the curriculum, will the local board be able to shut down schools and fire teachers? (6) if government involvement is so bad, then why does the state board of ed think they should hand down such machiavellian idiocies? (7) why does education have to be political?

thank goodness there won’t be a child left behind!!
