The Revisionaries is an urgent expose of the power struggle inside the Texas State Board of Education, the governing body that determines what students learn in Texas public schools and, due to the buying power of their system, often the entire country. It showcases how public education has become the latest battleground in a new wave of cultural, religious and ideological clashes, with local Texas education board members advancing agendas of Creationism and other religious issues in public schools. This award-winning documentary highlights how their tactics have had the effect of rewriting key tenets of U.S. democracy and are affecting educational policies at the national level - for generations to come.
We will discuss the film afterward and discuss some of the actions taking place in the current political climate that are alarming many secular individuals.
This event is intended only for members of Humanists Doing Good for educational purposes and is not open to the general public.
