Sign the “Keep Christmas” Petition. http://www.christmastextbooks.com/
Will Christmas stay or go? Will the Founding Fathers be given the respect they deserve? Will Columbus be buried in a lone corner of the curriculum? Will the effort to remove Veterans Day be stopped once and for all. Will teaching about our state and national religious heritage be changed? And much more!
Just a few questions that could receive more clear answers next week at the State Board of Education hearing & VOTE on all of the statewide Social Studies curriculum for K-12, next Wednesday. This hearing and VOTE will affect every public school student.
