Politics and the History Curriculum: The Struggle over Standards in Texas and the Nation
Erekson, Keith A., Ed.
Palgrave Macmillan
The politicians and pastors who revised the Texas social studies standards made national and international headlines. However, much of that coverage was sensational and squeezed the process into a narrow "culture war" storyline. Politics and the History Curriculum sets the debate over the Texas standards within a broader context by exploring the tangled and powerful mixture of politics, religion, media, and education. This volume provides a clear analysis of what happened and why, along with sensible recommendations for teachers and policy makers. (Contains 16 figures and 2 tables.)
