This is just the latest in a series of insane proposals being made in the Texas Board of Ed.

One Response to Texas Board of Ed wants to banish Neil Armstrong from history

  1. Um, am I missing something here? The article says “social studies” books so what would not being an official scientist have to do with anything?

    Is this how it works in the other 49 states? Some board decides what does or does not get into a history book? Man, Texas has gone all Fahrenheit 451 on us.
