Parental complaints over Tennessee textbooks set stage for legislative debate
At the latest front in the war over Tennessee textbooks, a Williamson County parent whose objections helped spark the entire controversy now says all the books her group has reviewed have flaws.
Laurie Cardoza-Moore's quest to discard a geography book she claimed was anti-Semitic failed last year. But now as Tennessee school districts prepare to adopt new textbooks for 2014-15, she has broadened her target to include one of the most powerful companies in public education: Pearson, a publishing company that she alleges has a history of bias.
"If they're going to pay for a product, it better not be defective," said Cardoza-Moore, who was among several parents who spoke in November at the state Senate Education Committee's hearings on the role of the state textbook commission.
