The Texas Board of Education has decided that students should no longer be taught that the United States is a democratic republic. They should be taught that it is a constitutional republic. Huh?????
Until this semester, I had never heard of B.C.E. and C.E. I thought it must be because I graduated so many years ago. Nope. "In final edits leading up to the vote, conservatives rejected language to modernize the classification of historic periods to B.C.E. and C.E. from the traditional B.C. and A.D." My daughter will be scratching her head when she first hears it, too.
