An Inappropriate POV

Some types of ideology are more equal than others:
Reps. Bobby Scott (Va.), Raul M. Grijalva (Ariz.), and Eddie Bernice Johnson (Texas) said in statements issued Monday that schools are “no place for anti-science propaganda” and called for teachers to dispose of certain books that don’t align with the liberal ideology.

The congressmen specifically called for schools nationwide to remove from their shelves the 2015 book “Why Climate Scientists Disagree About Global Warming.” The book was authored by Craig Idso, a former climatologist at Arizona State University; Robert Carter, professor of marine geology and paleontology at James Cook University; and Fred Singer, an environmental scientist at the University of Virginia, the Daily Caller reported.

Demands for the books to be removed came after the conservative Heartland Institute donated more than 25,000 copies of the book to science teachers last month. PBS reported the libertarian think tank intends to distribute copies to every public school science teacher in the country.
