Group 3 introduction

For our audience we chose The California Board of Education. California is the most populated state in the country yet they buy their public school textbooks from Texas. The Texas Board of Education wants to remove key Hispanic and African-American figures from curriculum in the textbooks that California and the rest of the country buy. Significant people and events that were based in California are proposed to be removed. We believe that if we can convince California to draft and purchase textbooks that are generally well rounded, historically accurate and unattached to religious affiliation, other states will be able to buy a textbook other than Texas' if they choose.

    You also need to check your facts. California doesn't necessarily buy their books from Texas, they just end up using the same ones since publishers make what Texas wants. If another large state, like California, were to demand something else, they could get different books.
