School Book Promotes Obama

WorldNet Daily is reporting that the mother of an eigth grader in Wisconsin discovered the Racine Unified School Distict using a textbook that laudes Senator Barrack Obama's "Change Theme".

"I just found out that my son's new (copyright 2008) Wisconsin - McDougal Littell Literature book has 15 pages covering Barack Obama," she writes. "I was shocked - No John McCain, no Hillary Clinton, no George Bush - Just Barack Obama."

The mother says she did some research on McDougal Littell and found chairman and CEO Alfred L. McDougal of Chicago has made contributions to Obama's campaign

"Is it ethical for an Obama supporter to publish an educational book which has a 15-page Barack Obama story in it? If the taxpayers are paying for these books, why is it okay for McDougal Littell to promote Obama? This really bothers me."

The school district said it has launched an investigation.

"I will tell you we are working on some information we just got. Until today we didn't know that information," said Stephanie Hayden, a district spokeswoman. "The director of curriculum and instruction is reviewing it right now."

The moderator on the RealDebate blog added, "This is not education folks, this is indoctrination."
