"Like the ACE curriculum, A Beka and Bob Jones textbooks promote Young-Earth creationism, are heavily laden with political bias, and at times verge on racism. As shown in the following video, among the dubious, factually incorrect, politically tendentious, and racially and culturally insensitive claims in A Beka Book and Bob Jones University Press textbooks are the following: - 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."" -
The part that always confuses people when you privatize, you lose control and now we pay for schools with absolutely no control of curriculum and textbooks. But we got rid of the bad ole teachers union and its bad horrible benefits so its full of win.. right? -
