TN Tea Partiers Demand Schools Not Teach Too Much About ‘Minority Experience’

From TPM Muckraker:

Local tea partiers have presented state legislators with a list of “demands,” that would alter school curricula to suppress the teaching of the “minority experience,” elect a “state litigator,” and, of course, reject Obama’s health care reform legislation, the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

On the education front, they’re proposing that new textbook-selection criteria basically state that you can teach about minorities in history, just as long as it doesn’t get in the way of teaching students about the majority or about how awesome the founding fathers were.
