Once upon a time, an evil leader decided to begin to destroy public education. The evil leader created a mandate called “No child left behind”. The evil leader provided $0 for funding for this mandate, instead passing costs on to states and local districts. The evil leader also mandated testing for all and conveniently had a family publishing business ready to prepare both the texts and tests. That is why, boys and girls, that all textbook adoptions follow the state of Texas’ choices, the publisher lives there!
This story is not over yet……the ending is not yet written. Pick the ending you desire.
