Thank goodness that the majority of our young people have access to computers and all types of research materials. In spite of the attempts to bring more religious and conservative views into the nation's textbooks, Mark Twain said it best....." Never let your schooling interfere with your education". I have great faith in the present generation and those to come. They see the world differently than their parents, have traveled more and don't believe everything they read or are taught. They will survive Texas right-wingers, never fear.

The john birch society is beginning to come out from the shadows but I've noticed they publicly distance themselves from the jbs subsidiaries that are popping up all over the place. The T- party being the most vocal. It seems they have a stable of useful idiots eventually get sucked into their paranoid their a communist, socialist or fascist behind ever bush world.

History is still History! Don't let them try to change or delete it! Our children need to learn the truth about this nation, the good and the bad. It happened, live with it!

Not according to the johh birch society. Welch encouraged his followers to get on school boards to do what the right claims the left is doing . That is indoctrinate our children.
google Brad Wyatt from Boylston and you'll see what I mean.
