Virginia Should “Take Aim At New Texas Standards” As Well

This is a great idea that Virginia should adopt as well.

…A new bill introduced in the state Senate by Sen. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) seeks to ensure that none of the Texas standards are allowed to be used in California in any fashion.

Under Yee’s bill, SB1451, the California Board of Education would be required to look out for any of the Texas content as part of its standard practice of reviewing public school textbooks. The board must then report any findings to the legislature and to the secretary of education.

Among other lunacy, the new Texas “standards” “say that the McCarthyism of the 1950s was later vindicated — something most historians deny — draw an equivalency between Jefferson Davis’s and Abraham Lincoln’s inaugural addresses, say that international institutions such as the United Nations imperil American sovereignty, and include a long list of Confederate officials about whom students must learn.” As I said, “lunacy.”

So, which delegate(s) and which state senator(s) are going to introduce this legislation in the next Virginia General Assembly session?
