The clip brings up a few things I mentioned the other day: why do these people have so much power in determining what kids should be learning in school, both in Texas and throughout the nation?  For more on the subject, check out the Talk of the Nation Podcast on the subject.  I feel that NPR is one of the few news organizations that doesn't resort to sensationalist headlines and hyperbole in an attempt to attract attention while simultaneously giving as little actual news as possible.
