The main job of the TAN County Chair is to establish a positive relationship with the county school board. Over 200 faulty excerpts with an anti-Judeo/Christian bias were identified in Social Studies textbooks currently being used in Florida’s schools. Chairs will provide a list of these textbooks and excerpts to their school board. School Boards will be asked to ensure that these excerpts are identified in the classroom. If you live outside of Florida and are concerned about misleading and inaccurate textbooks, and wish to be a reviewer contact National Co-chair Sheri Krass.
The Chair will also establish a committee and identify people to observe classes and research the International Baccalaureate (IB) textbooks. Chairs go to school board meetings to observe their actions and to voice their concerns. TAN Chairs will be instrumental in determining which School Board members coming up for re-election in 2012 are unwilling to work with us, use “delaying tactics”, and/or appear to adhere to a Progressive agenda. Political action will be taken to ensure that they are not re-elected.
