Teachers are increasingly reliant on outside resources (often found online, often produced by various institutions with various agendas). With funding cuts that limit the available of textbooks and mandated changes to our curriculum, we have to look to these resources--there is simply nothing else to use. However, we're also a group of intelligent professionals that know how to read critically and gauge the bias presented in said materials, and are hopefully teaching our students to do the same. Of all the issues facing education in our state right now, I'm not sure the inclusion of this one resource on a proposal is worth getting too worked up about.
