David Barton: "Historian"
What kind of historical "expertise" is the Texas State Board of Education getting from David Barton as he helps review and create the state's social studies curriculum?
According to the Texas Freedom Network, this is the sort of expert advice Barton is dispensing:
Buried on page 62 of phony history “expert” David Barton’s 87-page review of the social studies draft curriculum standards is a short section calling for the following revision to the eighth-grade American History requirements:
(C) analyze reasons for and the impact of selected examples of civil disobedience in U.S. history such as the Boston Tea Party, Shay’s Rebellion, Henry David Thoreau’s refusal to pay a tax, the Underground Railroad, the Montgomery Bus Boycott, and Rosa Parks at the lunch counter.
This is especially amazing because it was Park's refusal to give up her seat on the bus that led to the Montgomery Bus Boycott.
Does Barton not know this?
