LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - 4.6 million Texas students could see changes in their history books. The Texas Association of Educators met Thursday in Austin to discuss the curriculum draft. The board is in the preliminary stages of making these changes.
Texas Tech University history Professor Dr. Ron Milam expects to see students who complete the state's K-12 program in his classroom and encourages his students to learn the facts. "What happened, happened. It's our interpretations that may be different because of our political leanings but we try to fight out way through in our teaching and the way we approach our students," says Milam.
