Proud to be a Texan!
Here is a phrase from the Texas GOP 2012-13 platform:
Knowledge-Based Education – We oppose the teaching of Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) (values clarification), critical thinking skills and similar programs that are simply a relabeling of Outcome-Based Education (OBE) (mastery learning) which focus on behavior modification and have the purpose of challenging the student’s fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority.
Simply amazing. Simply crazy.
So, remember that next time you vote!
