...I happened upon this little snippet from an AOL News article
. Here's the excerpt that really boils my blood:
"...the original curriculum asked students to 'explain the impact of
Enlightenment ideas from John Locke, Thomas Hobbes, Voltaire, Charles de
Montesquieu, Jean Jacques Rousseau and Thomas Jefferson on political
revolutions from 1750 to the present.'...The new standard, passed at the meeting in a 10-5 vote, now reads, 'Explain the impact of the writings of John Locke, Thomas Hobbes,
Voltaire, Charles de Montesquieu, Jean Jacques Rousseau, Thomas Aquinas
John Calvin and Sir William Blackstone."
Not only is a state as patriotic (I'll give them that) as Texas
removing someone with as much impact on their country, and daily lives, as Thomas Jefferson from their curriculum, but they're replacing him with THOMAS AQUINAS
You just know that the 5 "proofs" are going to have to be brought up with him around, without question.
I didn't think this vote could cause any more trouble, but then, look. Wonderful.
