In this era, reality-based Americans are searching everywhere for signs of the truth. We can’t trust leaders. Half the country doesn’t believe in science. And we’re regularly told not to believe what we see and hear with our own eyes and ears. While the truth-bending is more subtle in the textbooks our kids use in school, it’s there too; and the spin on the facts you read largely depends on where you’re reading them. From the NYT: Two States. Eight Textbooks. Two American Stories. “The books have the same publisher. They credit the same authors. But they are customized for students in different states, and their contents sometimes diverge in ways that reflect the nation’s deepest partisan divides.” (Oh well, my search for nonpartisan truth continues. I think I’ll try Twitter next…)
