David Pakman examines some of the ‘facts’ taught in Louisiana schools under the state-approved ‘Voucher School’ system. Illuminating and depressing. Bible-based curriculum.

At least 19 participating schools, carry textbooks that include facts such as:

  • Dinosaurs and humans lived at the same time.
  • Dragons probably existed
  • The KKK wasn’t a bad organisation
  • The Supreme Court enslaves fetuses

(Pakman’s show is a regular insight from the US that’s worth a follow, here)
