Wisconsin may have gone back to the 1950s, but Texas Republicans
want to take us back to the Dark Ages.
"Texas Republicans also believe 'controversial theories' such evolution and climate change — which aren’t controversial at all — 'should be taught as challengeable scientific theories subject to change as new data is produced.' There’s more: the GOP also opposes the teaching of 'critical thinking skills' because they 'focus on behavior modification and have the purpose of challenging the student’s fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority.' ”
My sympathies to anyone female, of color, of non-traditional sexual preference, intelligent, curious, or who engages in critical thinking in Texas. (Yes, I know that sentence makes a hash of parallel construction, but at least I spelled parallel right.)
