I'm not entirely sure, yet, how we're making the transition from the 11 a.m. documentary, "The Great Textbook War," to the subsequent follow-up conversation, " What should our kids learn in school?"
The historical documentary could lead in so many different directions, including the rise of the religious right as a political force, by way of local school boards and school controversies. Rep. Michele Bachmann, for example, got her start in politics partly as a result of the Profiles of Learning.
So I'm live blogging here starting at noon, but opening up the area starting at 11 for your comments on what you're hearing on the radio (or online. You can listen here.), and we'll go here on the blog wherever you think we should go.
