"The Republican Party of Texas has issued their 2012 political platform and has come out and blatantly opposed critical thinking in public schools throughout the state. If you wonder what took them so long to actually state that publicly, it is really a matter of timing. With irrationality now the norm and an election hovering over the 2012 horizon, the timing of the Republican GOP announcement against "critical thinking" instruction couldn't be better. It helps gin up their anti-intellectual base." via Alternet.org. John Iadarola and Kim Horcher discuss on TYT University.
Do you find this statement from the Texas GOP as surprising and irritating as John did? Is there no limit to how unreasonable these local parties can be? Will this have any repercussions? Let us know what you think!
