As long as the books don’t teach them to hate Jews, this doesn’t seem so bad to me. And at least we get credit on the cover.
Maybe we should provide free textbooks to the palestinians and other Muslim countries. It’d be a way of taking some of the hate out of what they teach their kids.
Would those include “Heather Has Two Mommies”?
5.5 million textbooks at a cost of $5.9 million? Am I reading this right, or is the cost about a dollar a textbook?
Why can’t we get textbooks for American students at a dollar a textbook?
I leave it to the reader to decide whether it’s: (1) a wise and humanitarian investment of their tax dollars or: (2) a liberal waste of funds that could be better used here (whether for US schools or for taxpayer relief). The article/news brief simply states the facts.
This means the publishers lobbied for the program and charged the taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars. The Senators involved will claim we provided aid to Africans.
