    JUST A LITTLE MORE TO THE LEFT This textbook has got to win the prize for most PC.

    “Geography: The World and its People,” published by McGraw Hill. Here we find lessons about:

    Eye on the Environment: Danger – Ozone Loss

    United States and Canada: Trash

    South America: The Disappearing Rain Forest

    Europe: Pollution

    Russia: Chernobyl – Nuclear Disaster

    Southwest Asia: Water – A Precious Resource

    Africa: Desertification

    Asia: Habitat Loss

    Great Barrier Reef: Trouble Down Under

    There may be hope, however.

    Parents protest to their local school boards, who say they have nothing to do with what’s in the textbooks. Textbook publishers publish what school districts purchase. Teachers teach what the state requires. The state requires whatever produces federal funds. The teachers’ unions determine what the federal government requires.

    Home schooling – and private schools – may be the revolution that collapses this public brainwashing system.
