WARNING: Stone-Age State of Texas Decides What's in Your Child's Textbooks

Coming to a textbook near you (via Think Progress):

A new University of Texas/Texas Tribune survey shows just how destructive a politicized right-wing curriculum can be. A large number of Texans polled said they still don’t believe in evolution and are convinced that humans and dinosaurs co-existed:

51 percent disagree with the statement, “Human beings, as we know them today, developed from earlier species of animals.”

38 percent agree with the statement, “God created human beings pretty much in their present form about 10,000 years ago.”

30 percent agree with the statement, “Humans and dinosaurs lived at the same time.” Another 30 percent said they “don’t know” whether the statement is true.
