Florida Citizens Alliance, and Truth in Textbooks (TNT) have teamed up to fight objectionable textbooks in Florida K-12. According to a report by Citizens for National Security, Florida schools contain 25 Pro Islam- biased textbooks. Schools also use obscene materials, and some distinctly anti-American books such as “A People’s History of the United States” by Howard Zinn. Zinn famously stated on a television interview, that “The world would have been better off had America never existed.”
New Florida legislation now makes it mandatory for school districts to allow citizens to review textbooks and make recommendations to the school districts. Truth in Textbooks is looking for volunteers to take their course on textbook reviewing and then start reviewing textbooks county by county.
“Truth in Textbooks is starting our 4th year of training volunteers to help return “truth to textbooks” in our children’s classrooms around the country. We are approaching nearly 200 volunteers who have participated in our training. Training starts today
TNT has received official IRS 501c3 status.
