A must read is the whole mess, but here’s an excerpt :
Cynthia Dunbar, a lawyer from Richmond who is a strict constitutionalist and thinks the nation was founded on Christian beliefs, managed to cut Thomas Jefferson from a list of figures whose writings inspired revolutions in the late 18th century and 19th century, replacing him with St. Thomas Aquinas, John Calvin and William Blackstone. (Jefferson is not well liked among conservatives on the board because he coined the term “separation between church and state.”)
Unsaid in the link of course, but basically, Texas already controls all the text book curriculum everywhere in the United States Of America, because it’s such a huge state, and because most of the text book manufacturers are already Texan, and right wing.
