Mole's Progressive Democrat

The Progressive Democrat Newsletter grew out of the frustration of the 2004 election. Originally intended for New York City progressives, its readership is now national. For anyone who wants to be alerted by email whenever this newsletter is updated (usually weekly), please send your email address and let me know what state you live in (so I can keep track of my readership).

Name:
Location: Brooklyn, New York, United States

    Is this who you want to decide what Texas schoolchildren learn? Or would you rather entrust that task to someone who believes public education is a "tool of perversion," as board member Cynthia Dunbar believes? Or maybe any one of the board members who believe the separation of church and state is a myth? If this is not what you want for Texas children, NOW is the critical time to take a stand. The controversial social studies curriculum process is coming to an end. Public testimony will be heard at the State Board of Education meeting on Wednesday, May 19, and we expect a vote on these standards to take place the following day. We need you to stand up to the State Board of Education by attending our rally on Wednesday, May 19. Or testifying in front of the board. Or both! Sign Up Here Questions Call Judie 322-0545
