Over at his blog Religion in American History, Dr. Paul Harvey has posted an excellent piece on some of the recent controversies surrounding the teaching of history in public schools -- particularly the role that David Barton and his supporters have had on the historical revision of textbooks. Removing Cesar Chavez and Anne Hutchinson from American history? Wow. Amazing how the loudest voices against historical revision are coming from the same people who want to "revise" history to fit their personal agenda.
