The textbooks were written to align with instructional standards that the Board of Education approved back in 2010
DALLAS—The Texas Board of Education is poised to enact a new social-studies curriculum that portrays America as a nation rooted in Biblical values and promotes the virtues of low taxes, limited regulation and free enterprise.
The previous standards, a decade old, defined good citizenship as
"a belief in
responsibility for the common good."
The new standards talk about
respect for others,
personal responsibility, and
the importance of voting and of "holding public officials to their word."
Drop truth, equality, common good, and justice.
