Associated Press Pushes Lies About 'Far-Right' Texas School Curriculum

AP follows the Washington Post's lead in reporting falsehoods about the new "conservative" education curriculum approved in Texas.

AP- "A far-right faction of the Texas State Board of Education... the board gave preliminary approval to the new standards with a 10-5 party-line vote."

Isn't 10-5 an overwhelming majority? A "far-right faction..."

AP "...gained a giant step forward Friday in injecting conservative ideals into social studies, history and economics lessons that will be taught to millions of students for the next decade."

Which conservative ideals? Replacing the words “Democratic society" with "constitutional Republic”? I don't see anything in the document that pushes a conservative ideoogy.

AP- "Teachers in Texas will probably be required to cover the Judeo-Christian influences of the nation's Founding Fathers — but not highlight the philosophical rationale for the separation of church and state."

False. The curriculum will have students learn "how religion and virtue contributed to the growth of representative government" but there is no mention of Judeo-Christian influences. The curriculum specifically highlights the rationale for separation of church and state, as students will "analyze the impact of the First Ammendment guarantees of religious freedom."

AP- "Curriculum standards also will describe the U.S. government as a "constitutional republic," rather than as "democratic"..."

That's what America is, a democratic republic, and this is what the curriculum makes perfectly clear. Several parts read "the content enables students to... appreciate the basic democratic values of our state and nation as referenced in the Texas Education Code." Students must "identify historical origins of democratic forms of government." Students will learn to participate in the constitutional republic with their "individual rights." They will "analyze efforts to expand the democratic process."

AP makes the baseless claim that the changes "watered down the teaching of the civil rights movement," and that it will somehow "water down the rationale for the separation of church and state."

Like Washington Post, AP completely misrepresents the issue as they attack the changes as far right exremist, injecting conservative ideology. They are really worried that radical liberal ideology is in danger of brainwashing children, however.

Liberal ABC News, Newsweek, New York Times and thousands of other liberal media repeat the lies.
