New Reviews Posted

Truth in Textbooks has updated the TNT website with the a total of 36 more reviews that originated as a result of the California and North Carolina reviews conducted last year.

California reviews (K-8) and a Report Card for the 28 textbooks can be found on this page.  Ratings have been applied to each of the textbooks.  This link is to a summary of many of the worse errors found in all reviews.

North Carolina reviews (9-12) can be found on this page.  Ratings on these textbooks have not been applied but will be in the near future.  We will update the reports as soon as we get the final ratings.  This link is to the summary of many of the worse errors found in all reviews.

HOW TO USE THIS INFORMATION

1. Contact your local school board and determine the social studies textbooks used for the specific grades that these textbook reviews cover.  Obtain the name of the publisher, the title of the textbook, edition/version and ISBN and date of the textbook.

2. Compare the list received from local school boards to the lists of books reviewed on our website.  If the textbook is on any of the lists then review the errors found in the textbooks.

3. Obtain a copy of the textbook, if possible, or go to the school and take the time to confirm the errors found in the report are in the textbook you wish to critique.  Highlight on the report the worse errors found within the textbook. Use the index in the textbook to quickly find the references to those particular topics.

4. Arrange a meeting with your local school board member. Bring with you your notes and talking points on the specific errors spelled out in the report.  If unable, speak to the local principal and bring to their attention the TNT report and the errors found in the textbook.  Leave with either representative a copy of the full report and specific errors you highlighted during your research.

5. Request time to appear above the local school board if the textbooks have not been purchased yet, i.e. are being considered for purchase.  Bring several friends to the meeting and have each representative speak on a different parts of the book insuring you are covering a wide range of errors, i.e. climate change, religion, US history, Islam, Israel, etc.

6. If no action is taken, do one of the following. (a).  Run for local school board or appeal to get on the local textbook review committee (if there is such a position).  When you run for office, make one of the primary campaign issues the issue of textbooks. If running against an incumbent, use some of the most outrageous errors in the campaign.  Quote from the textbooks in question during debates and ask why the incumbent would approve of such books.

Truth in Textbooks is excited to announce a new partner to join with the Florida Citizen’s Alliance in our fight to return truth to our children’s social studies textbooks, The Report Card.

 The Report Card

Posting announcing partnership between The Report Card.org and Truth in Textbooks

“The Report Card” founded by Bill Korach in 2011 has the express goal of “restoring truth to education”.  Based out of Florida but with a readership that stretches across the United States, “The Report Card” keeps its readers up to date on education trends at the K-12 as well on college campuses.

The Report Card is at the forefront of exposing biases found in the textbooks and other flaws within the American education system that corrupt the foundational principles America is founded upon.

Just a few of the hundreds of articles relating to education are below:

Exposing the dangers of Common Core

Trump Supports School Choice, Opposes Common Core-Is Attacked by Teachers Union
New Book Proves Common Core is Bad for American Education

Exposing the liberal biases on college campuses

Prof: Left-wing College Dominance is a Disease
Multiculturalism at Yale: Remove Portraits of White Men

Agenda laden sex education, promoting transgender agendas and promotion of a pro-LGBT agenda in schools

Delaware K-12 Kids to Decide Gender & Race Without Parent Consent
Pediatrician and Pastor Oppose Transgender School Indoc-“It’s Child Abuse”
LGBT Bullies Sue St. Johns FL Schools to Force Transgender Bathrooms

Exposing the madness of multiculturalism

School Librarian Scorns First Lady’s Dr. Seuss Gift: Books are “Racist
White Authors Verboten at Reed College

Based in Florida, The Report Card has loyal Floridians who have taken up The Report Card’s call to become activists in their school districts in taking back the classroom from “educrats” who for years have gone unchallenged.

Truth in Textbooks is proud to partner with readers of The Report Card and hope those who follow TNT will join the mailing list for The Report Card by  adding your name to the right on the The Report Card homepage on the right side of the homepage where you can enter your email address.

You can also “Like” their Facebook page by clicking here.

We urge those supporters of The Report Card to sign up to participate in the Truth in Textbooks training for volunteers on how to become social studies textbook reviewers.

Persons can write to tnt.textbooks@gmail.com to start the process or can visit this link to learn more about how to participate.
