And students wonder why they don’t know history?  It would help if the Texas State Board of Educations would stop politicizing what standards will be in textbooks so as to not have that influence upon the rest of us.  IS it any wonder why people fly the Confederate Flag and don’t think it has anything to do with slavery?  Up next swastikas.
