“The Revisionaries,” the award-winning documentary about the textbook wars at the Texas State Board of Education, is getting another week-long run at Austin’s Violet Crown Cinema. If you didn’t get a chance to catch this must-see film last week, make the time to go between now and November 8.
“The Revisionaries” is an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look at the workings of the State Board of Education, the highly politicized governing body that determines what millions of students learn in Texas public schools. The documentary exposes how 15 board members, led by creationists, abuse their power to approve politicized curriculum standards and textbooks that will be used in the state’s schools for a generation.
The Texas Freedom Network’s efforts to stop the politicizing of our children’s classrooms is featured prominently in the film.
