Saying It Will Not Make It So

| | Comments (0)

The Texas School Board forced publishers to alter text in their middle and high school textbooks to delete the words "married partners" and to put in place the following definition of marriage: "lifelong union between a husband and a wife." What Texas (the second largest text book buyer in the country) dictates to the publishers, ends up in textbooks in a host of other states which buy books from the same publishers.

Now, does one really have to ask if the definition above is going to make a dent in the 50% and growing divorce rate in Amerca? I don't think so. Is this the new wave of legislating through school curriculum for the future ? I do think so. Will it be successful - that remains to be seen.
