'Peer reviewed' textbook concludes half country racist

2016 election county mapA high school textbook that suggests President Donald Trump is mentally ill and his supporters are racist supposedly reached such conclusions after “rigorous” review.

Upper-level high schoolers across the nation, who enroll in an advanced placement history course, will read about the “Angry Election of 2016” in the textbook published by Pearson Education.

Fox News radio host Todd Starnes described the textbook writings in an April story but he credits a radio host, Alex Clark, for exposing the issue last year.

Other right-leaning outlets including The Federalist, Fox News, CBN, and OneNewsNow have reported on the same controversial claims, Starnes pointed out.

Horace Cooper of Project 21 says it is wrong for anyone --- a book publisher, a public school district, or a classroom teacher --- to present such biased information to students.

Pearson claims the publication underwent "rigorous peer review,” a claim that Cooper calls doubtful.

“Because if that is acceptable, if that is assumed that you can make that kind of assertion,” he explains, “then the whole peer review process has fallen apart."

Cooper predicts there are many state legislators who would be interested to learn that a textbook like this is being used in districts they represent.
