Texas Drops Jefferson?

Is it true that some school system(s) in Texas will not teach of Jefferson since he was the one, so they claim, who gave us separation of church and state? Did anyone else hear about this one?

While this article doesn’t appear to mention Jefferson in particular, it does seem that the conservatives on the Texas Board of Education are more or less headed in that direction. Anything that they disagree with philosophically, they want removed from textbooks and curriculum.

Since the OP has a psychological block about using the Search function, I’ll point out two recent major threads on this.

TX education board conservatives succeed in whitewashing history

is it just me or is this very worrisome [article about conservative influence on history textbooks]

And, since the OP does this crap all the time, this one is closed.

Thanks for the links, Exapno.
