Official Rips Textbook ‘Indoctrination’

An Adams County Republican precinct committeewoman regaled the House Education Committee this morning with her views that an American government textbook used at her local high school was “a liberal Democrat’s dream of indoctrination,” reports Bill Spence of the Lewiston Tribune. “Among the things it recommends kids do to get politically active: 'Attend a climate change rally,'” Anita VanGrunsven told the committee. “A climate change rally! Excuse me? … Where is the foundational concept of limited government? It's not here. Where is the concept of individual responsibility? It's gone. Is this what you want the future leaders of Idaho to be taught? Am I talking to any Republicans here?”/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise, with link to Spence's full story here.

Question: Do you believe there's a liberal bias in textbooks used in Idaho schools?
