WHY THE TEXTBOOK TATTLER??
14 months ago a Rutherford County, TN., sixth-grader came home from school and told his parents about what he’d found in his World History book. The parents looked, and were shocked! Their concerns launched a series of historic events… Complaints to the school board were ignored. It triggered a deeper look. A small group formed to investigate further. What did they discover?? With access to the upcoming textbooks for the 2014 school year, that 6th grade textbook was just the “tip of the iceberg”. THIS TABLOID IS JUST A SAMPLING OF WHAT WAS DISCOVERED During August, scores of volunteers across TN reviewed the 72 books on the State list: – 39% were declared as unacceptable for Tennessee classrooms – 12% need major revisions to meet acceptable standards – Many more need minor fixes The final adoption process of these deficient, error-riddled textbooks are now in the hands of YOUR local school districts. All but ONE Advanced Placement Psychology book was approved by the State Textbook Review Commission! Unbelievable!! The decision to adopt the crop of 2014 History, Social Studies, Psychology, and Finance textbooks for K-12th grade is NOW in the hands of your local County and City School Boards. If you are a Tennessee resident concerned about what your children, grandchildren, and the kids down the block are being taught in school, your time to change history has come!
