TEXAS BOARD OF EDUCATION TO
VOTE ON BAN ON THOUSANDS OF FACTUAL ERRORS IN TEXTBOOKS IN HANDS OF SCHOOLCHILDREN


CALIFORNIA BOARD OF EDUCATION IGNORES PETITION TO BAN ERRORS IN TEXTBOOKS; STATUTE SAY FACTUAL ACCURACY, BUT BOARD HAS NO RULES

TOP CALIFORNIA SCHOOL BOARD GROUP VIOLATES CIVIL RIGHTS LAW, DISCRIMINATES ON BASIS OF RACE, ETHNICITY, AND NATIONAL ORIGIN; CSBA CLAIMS WHITE CAN BE BLACK,
ASIANS CAN BE AMERICAN INDIAN

HEARTLAND INSTITUTE
FEATURES CALIFORNIA'S FAILURE
TO STOP ERRORS IN TEXTBOOKS

 

   Textbooks should be 100% trustworthy.  Textbooks should be 100% accurate.  Many are not. Millions of students, teachers, parents, academics, administrators, and taxpayers are disserved by these avoidable systematic faults.

    Textbook publishers should embrace warranties on accuracy.  Textbook adopters and buyers should demand such quality control.  Other industries have product recalls.  In the realm of academics textbook publishing has a duty not to misinform millions of students nationwide and to make the work of teachers harder.  Failure to correct errors, contradictions, and gross omissions calls into question the entire contents of a textbook.

    We urge a race to the top.
