The second part delves specifically into teaching: "No teacher of any discipline of science shall teach any aspect of religious faith as science or in a science class. No teacher of any discipline of science shall teach creationism or intelligent design in classes designated as science classes."

This seems overly broad and likely to come back to bite the drafters in the ass.

Good.

Wait, you just linked your fark account with your real identity in the education field? Isn't that basically the same amount of career suicide as being on a sex offender registry?

Oh great, now another hurricane will hit Nawlins and then the following HURRicane will blame the godlessness of the schools.

No history textbook shall be approved which has been adjusted in accordance with the State of Texas revisionist guidelines

So, if it was originally written to those guidelines, and didn't need any adjustments, it's ok?

We want to make sure kids are taught history that has been properly vetted by academics elitist liberals

It doesn't specify what it means by "religious faith" and it uses terms like "No teacher" and "any aspect".

Additionally, the singling out of a particular brand of "science" by name doesn't seem like it would stand up to equal protection.

FTFA: Although none of these six New Orleans schools currently teaches creationism or "intelligent design," outgoing Orleans Parish School Board President Thomas Robichaux is making sure they never will

His work there is done.

/Good job, TRobichaux

Good thing too, Texas has enough bullshiat in its pastures and textbooks. They don't need to export it to other states.

How about this idea, cowboy? How about we teach SCIENCE in science classes? I "get" that you don't much like liberals, but maybe we can teach actual science in science classes in lieu of mythology?
 
2012-12-25 01:17:16 AM
Won't someone think of the children,

What's that...

I'm getting information that yes,

Someone has finally thought of the children,

Now for something silly,

"No history textbook shall be approved which has been adjusted in accordance with the State of Texas revisionist guidelines nor shall any science textbook be approved which presents creationism or intelligent design as science or scientific theories."

"No teacher of any discipline of science shall teach any aspect of religious faith as science or in a science class. No teacher of any discipline of science shall teach creationism or intelligent design in classes designated as science classes."

Robichaux is a liberal Democrat and the school board's first openly gay president,

One of these things is not like the other.

Or we could, you know, just teach every creation myth to be fair. Of course, there wouldn't be time left to teach any scie...

Ah, I see.

It seems to be that simply doing his job in his derpy area is risky business. I say he gets extra credit for that.

The phrase was "singling out of a particular brand of "science" by name" and I'm just trying to figure out what you mean because neither of those things are considered a science.

I think you're misunderestimating Americans.

Well, you have to "understand" that some "people" have this strange habit "of" quoting words more or le"s"s at random, so we don't put much stock in it.

What in the damn hell are you talking about? I was in Texas schools from 1st grade and that is utter nonsense. There are a lot (a lot may be an understatement, more like metric farkton) of things wrong with Texas schools but that simply is not one of them. I don't even know what the Texas pledge is, I have maybe heard it once or twice. And I went to a small god fearing school where football was sacrosaint.
