So why is this important? Texas is the the 2nd largest state in population, which also means they have the one of the largest influence in textbook sales due to their size of students. I smell some complete and utter bull here. This is one of many reasons that our public education system is failing our future generation. Hopefully Secretary of Education Arne Duncan can help this out with the reform of NCLB or Conservative (mainly the Creationist, Tea-bagging, Ann Coulter/Rush Limbaugh listening, Ultra-Conservative type) Texans can get their heads out of their asses and be fair about teaching our kids rather than pushing their agenda and remove the Ultra-Conservative bloc from the BoE.
