From today's New York Times: Texas Rejects Letting Academics Vet Public School Textbooks

Lead paragraph:

quote:
Top Texas education officials rejected Wednesday letting university experts fact-check textbooks approved for use in public-school classrooms statewide, instead reaffirming a vetting system that has helped spark years of ideological battles over how potentially thorny lessons in history and science are taught.

We've discussed textbooks and Texas before, though not recently. I didn't want to start a new discussion, just bring this to people's attention.
