What Kind of People Did Rick Perry Appoint to Head the Texas State Board of Education? Creationists

3 August 2011 at 1:39:47 PM

2007 -Don McLeroy

2009- Gail Lowe

BOTH are creationists who wanted creationism taught in science clas (as does Rick Perry) . Don McLeroy famously endorsed Worm Reptile Monkey People.

The Texas Lege kicked McLeroy out. Here are some reasons why.  Read it for a laugh-it wasn't only creation that he was ridiculous about.

On reading and language arts

 “What good does it do to put a Chinese story in an English book? You learn all these Chinese words, OK. That's not going to help you master ... English. So you really don't want Chinese books with a bunch of crazy Chinese words in them. Why should you take a child's time trying to learn a word that they'll never ever use again?” He added that some words — such as chow mein — might be useful.

            - San Antonio Express-News, March 21, 2008, discussing why language arts students shouldn’t be reading the works of authors from different countries

and what about Gail Lowe? From TFN  This is a woman who, despite Ector County school district being sued over a bible textbook (which suit they LOST) still wanted to press that book in all of Texas schools.  Also see who she nominated for a SCIENCE panel.

As a side note, this woman, Cynthia Dunbar not put in place by Rick Perry but it's the kind of school board we had. She sent her kids to private school, HATED public education but was ON THE TEXAS STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION.

Guess what. Texas is 49th in the US in education. Rest of the US want this?
