Thanks to a new law privatizing public education in Louisiana, Bible-based curriculum can now indoctrinate young, pliant minds with the good news of the Lord—all on the state taxpayers' dime...

...Zack Kopplin, a gutsy college sophomore who's taken to Change.org to stonewall the program, has identified at least 19 [standards] that teach or champion creationist nonscience and will rake in nearly $4 million in public funding from the initial round of voucher designations.

Some of the choice bits:

2. Dragons were totally real: "[Is] it possible that a fire-breathing animal really existed? Today some scientists are saying yes. They have found large chambers in certain dinosaur skulls…The large skull chambers could have contained special chemical-producing glands. When the animal forced the chemicals out of its mouth or nose, these substances may have combined and produced fire and smoke."—Life Science, 3rd ed., Bob Jones University Press, 2007

3. "God used the Trail of Tears to bring many Indians to Christ."—America: Land That I Love, Teacher ed., A Beka Book, 1994

6. The KKK was A-OK: "[The Ku Klux] Klan in some areas of the country tried to be a means of reform, fighting the decline in morality and using the symbol of the cross. Klan targets were bootleggers, wife-beaters, and immoral movies. In some communities it achieved a certain respectability as it worked with politicians."—United States History for Christian Schools, 3rd ed., Bob Jones University Press, 2001

Lots more....

I hope someone is challenging in federal court. I don't expect anything from LA courts, or their people. Especially not after reading that.

Why start there? Why not give the young students Columbus' own description of how he brought Christ to the Arawaks:

It was also the excuse the Teutonic Knights had for slaughtering the Prussians. By the time the Teutonic Knights were done there were no Prussians.
