Standing Up To The Experts by Orlando Wood In a small room in Austin, Texas, a group of fifteen people are single-handedly deciding what is taught to the next generation of American children. The highly politicized fifteen-member Texas State Board of Education is currently going through the once-in-a-decade process of rewriting the teaching and textbook standards for its nearly 5 million schoolchildren. And when it comes to textbooks, what happens in Texas affects the whole nation. Texas is the nation’s largest textbook market. Over the course of the current review, the board has been focusing on infusing the school curriculum with broader conservative and religious themes. Simply put, our goal is to shed light on this important issue and the key players in this process -- we will explain their goals, explore the scope of their influence, and delve into the personal motivations behind their actions. In the time we’ve been working on this project, we’ve amassed over 200 hours of footage. This is where you come in… Thank you!
gradualreport's Channel Hey team lemondrops, team awesome, team reduce word suck, team balls deep, team living life to the fullest, team lets do this, team doing it, here is the link paypal, here is the link patreon, OK you get the idea, we are a team, you me and about 2000 other people. It's been a great so far... but it would be cool if you could step into the paying for stuff little. As a bonus, I will send you a post card from different parts of the earth as I travel around and reduce world suck. Each card is hand written to you from me, it will have thoughts some deep some silly and possibly hand drawn pictures. This is going to be fun and getting stuff in the mail is fun and helping me continue the journey is fun and doing important work is important and fun... My goal is to get 100 people on this train, that would go a super long way in keeping me going. More is always better but I aim low so that I can reach my goals and not get discouraged. -d
