Don McLeroy , who worked to provide Texas and the nation with unbiased school books has been overthrown in a left-wing coup d'้tat .
McLeroy and the conservative half of the Board questioned certain questionable "facts" that were being placed in school books.(as is their job)
Since Texas is the largest purchaser of school books, nation-wide book writers tailor school books to the Texas requirments.
McLeroy questioned American school books referring to America as "Imperialist" which they replaced with "Expansionist"
The books referred to America's early involvment in WW1 as "Propaganda".
McLeroy and the Board also removed descriptions of America as being "Capitalist"
The biggest controversy was questioning some teachings about Evolution and adding suggestions of Creationism.
In a disturbing statement by one of McLeroy's organized opponents, she said that
"Those are the facts that kids are going to need if they are going to be successful in college"
McLeroy served on the board for 12 years.
He served in the military.
He is a dentist.
He volunteers with Boyscouts of America, Gideons International, and he is a Sunday school teacher.
In a phony election he lost to Thomas Ratliff, who is a lobbyist.
Ratliff says he is a Christian who doesn't mind children being taught Evolution.
The phony election results were he received 57,528 votes (49.6 percent) to Ratliff's 58,388 (50.4 percent).
Man! you just missed it!
( the closer the election results, the more credible they seem)
they say there won't be any new changes for another 10 years
