Textbooks still provoke controversy

BY Gaiutra Bahadur

The textbooks recently put on trial before the state's education board cover environmental science, but the controversy surrounding them invoked recent political history for some.

The Rejected Textbook

Daniel Chiras' textbook ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE CREATING A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE is, as he states, "unlike most other textbooks" (p.6). He is right; it does differ from all the other textbooks that the Texas State Board of Education reviewed in that the entire construct of Chiras' book is based on a factual error and a false premise. To understand the root error, all we need to do is to look at the book's preface and first chapter. In the preface Chiras states, "The main theme of this book is that the long-term well-being of this planet and its inhabitants is in jeopardy and that to create an enduring human presence we must make a massive course change" (p. vi). To support this theme, he loses all objectivity on environmental science and turns his book into an advocacy for environmentalism.

NEED TO USE OUTSIDE LAWYERS SENDS JUDICIAL BUDGET SOARING

BY STAN BAILEY

MONTGOMERY - The state Judicial Inquiry Commission's budget ballooned by almost 75 percent last budget year, fueled mostly by expenses to prosecute and defend itself against cases stemming from the 2000 elections. A Birmingham law firm is charging more than $115,000 for helping to prosecute Justice Harold See on ethics charges and for defending the commission in See's federal lawsuit.
