Tell the Texas State Board of Education To Not Rewrite History!

This petition had 176 supporters


*There is also a petition sponsored by Credo Action that aims to stop Texas to rewriting history. However, this petition will go directly to the Texas State Board of Education whereas Credo's goes to Pearson Education and various publishing companies. We strongly advise that petitioners sign both petitions for the ultimate impact.  

Sign a petition to tell the Texas State Board of Education to not pass a vote that will inject conservative ideals into new social studies, economic and history curriculum that will be used as a template for textbook publishers across the country. 

The Texas State Board of Education voted 10-5  on March 12th the approval of a new curriculum with the vote falling on racial lines; all whites voting for, and all minorities voting against. However, they are making a final vote in May after hearing public testimonies. Be part of that public voice, and sign this petition telling the TSBOE that we do not want high schools to text out of textbooks that will not: 

 

Eliminate the reference of Separation of Church and State 

Replace Evolution with Creationism 

Downplay JFK's role in history while boosting Reagan's.

Not include that Non-Whites died on the American side of the Alamo

Minimize Native American, African American and Hispanic history in the US

Eliminate Thomas Jefferson and replace him with religious icon John Calvin
