Louisiana history and social science education will also be hurt (information from Pharyngula — Freethought Blogs)

It’s not just science education that will be taking hits with Gov. Jindal’s so-called “education reform.”

Taxpayer funds will go to support the following examples of textbook nonsense that have no place in state-funded education:

  • Only ten percent of Africans can read or write, because Christian mission schools have been shut down by communists.
  • “the [Ku Klux] Klan in some areas of the country tried to be a means of reform, fighting the decline in morality and using the symbol of the cross… In some communities it achieved a certain respectability as it worked with politicians.”
  • “God used the ‘Trail of Tears’ to bring many Indians to Christ.”
  • It “cannot be shown scientifically that that man-made pollutants will one day drastically reduce the depth of the atmosphere’s ozone layer.”
  • “God has provided certain ‘checks and balances’ in creation to prevent many of the global upsets that have been predicted by environmentalists.”
  • the Great Depression was exaggerated by propagandists, including John Steinbeck, to advance a socialist agenda.
  • “Unions have always been plagued by socialists and anarchists who use laborers to destroy the free enterprise system that hardworking Americans have created.”
  • Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential win was due to an imaginary economic crisis created by the media.
  • “The greatest struggle of all time, the Battle of Armageddon, will occur in the Middle East when Christ returns to set up his kingdom on earth.”
