The Report Card has been covering the effort by the left wing educational establishment to re-write American history and in fact Western Civilization to convince America’s youth that America is inherently racist, homophobic, and xenophobic. For the past 8 years we’ve exposed the Left’s effort to alter our educational system to help promote their agenda. One of those methods is the elimination of America’s rich history and Western Civilization’s contributions with “fake history” content. There was a time when the discussion of Judeo-Christian influences was accurately portrayed on the founding of this great nation. Sadly, we have seen that content removed and replaced with inaccuracies along with other PC themed content.
Fortunately, the Florida legislature has passed SR 989 that requires school districts to make textbooks available to taxpayers and families for review. Similar laws are being passed in other states and we are looking for volunteers to read and review these textbooks.
“The Report Card” Partners with Truth in Textbooks, A National Effort to Correct History and Social Studies Textbooks
The Report Card is excited to launch a partnership with my friend Lt. Col. Roy White, USAF ret. Truth in Textbooks (TNT) Founder. TNT is a group of volunteers that have demonstrated great success in conducting the necessary research and lobbying influence at local and state levels in eliminating or correcting many falsehoods found in the US History, World History, US Government and Geography textbooks. You can learn more about their great work at www.truthintextbooks.com
For example, in 2014 TNT’s initial venture with less than 50 volunteers resulted in the identification of over 1500 errors in the proposed social studies textbooks under consideration by the Texas State Board of Education (SBOE). After their 469-page report and testimony from several of the reviewers, the SBOE chose to eliminate or correct over 60% of the errors before the books were accepted. One publisher, Worldview, was completely removed from consideration when they failed to make the necessary changes recommended by TNT. As a result, over 5 million children have more accurate textbooks as a result of the work of Truth in Textbooks and their volunteers. That is the type of “action” and “results” CAN members can become a part and join with other concerned citizen groups.
What’s The Secret Sauce for TNT’s Success?
Two elements: TNT volunteers and TNT training! TNT has a “process and procedure” that turns well read, concerned citizens (most of their reviewers do not hold higher degrees in social studies) into critical readers who are able to identify the many PC themes (such as errors related to Jewish history and much more) that TNT has uncovered in their reviews of over 60 other social studies textbooks found in Texas, California, North Carolina and Florida.
The training will all be done from your home using conference calls (1 hour only) and homework reading/viewing assignments (2-3 hours a week) for the first two months. The third month volunteers will be paired with other TNT students and will review a social studies textbook using the procedures that were taught in the first two months. Direct feedback will be provided to each reviewer during this “mock review” month in order to make you a more efficient and effective reviewer.
Since 2014 nearly 200 citizens have undergone this training and have found it to be very effective in turning these volunteers into a “strike force” of citizens that can assist school districts and entire states in conducting thorough and credible reviews. By volunteering you fulfill the mission of TNT, CAN and most importantly help our children learn “real history” versus “fake history”.
