It's with a certain measure of disgust that I've been following the apparently successful efforts of Texas Board of Education's conservative faction to rewrite history as it will be taught to schoolchildren. Can someone please explain to me why people with no academic credentials and no educational expertise get to distort facts and impose fictions upon schoolchildren? Will we be allowing entirely untrained individuals to set medical standards next? Oh...wait a minute. I forgot about politicians' attempts to tell doctors what to do and say when it comes to a woman's reproductive health. Argh!
