Texas Ed: Comments on Education from Texas

October 25, 2006

Another endorsement in SBOE District 9 Race

Editorial: Charlton for state school board:

A few years ago, smelling a political opportunity, several candidates representing the Christian right skillfully targeted state school board seats. Their objective was to dictate the content of textbooks and to counter such things as the teaching of evolution and of history they considered to be anti-American or pro-feminist.McLeroy, a critic of evolution theory as it pertains to human origins, often is an ally with the religious-right bloc on the board.

That’s not to say McLeroy is not independent or thoughtful. He is both. But Charleton would be less likely to vote with those who want to play politics with children’s education.

Editorial: Charlton for state school board:

Not that McLeroy is the prime culprit in any fashion, but too often the state board turns into ideological mud wrestling. We’d prefer it to be about education.

Well, what do you expect from the Waco Tribune-Herald? After all, they’re endorsing Strayhorn as well.
