Texas: Just Secede Already

The War On Facts onegoodmove

Dear Other 49 States,

There's an easy fix to this problem. Don't buy textbooks. I mean I could hardly teach from a history textbook with a straight face after reading Lies My Teacher Told Me anyway. And think of the savings! We could use the books in the library instead and have a much more interesting discussion. Remember, our job is to teach student how to think, not what to believe. That's the main thing those yahoos on the Texas BOE have forgotten.
