Click below, this video from the Texas Democratic Party state Convention. The misinformation continues on this video regarding Texas Social Studies. Just one example, a woman claims certain people were left out the the social studies standards. She claims the SBOE is taking away “vital role models”, such as “Dr. King”, “Barbara Jordan”, and so on. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MgYgrat0-0
People, please read the actual content of the standards. www.juststatethefacts.com.
Martin Luther King, Jr. is referenced specifically, six (6) times. Barbara Jordan is covered twice. So, this shows how ridiculous it is that educated people are claiming these historical figures are being taken out. Sad, very sad.
