In case you’re in New York City this weekend, I will be leading a question-and-answer session after the opening of the new documentary The Revisionaries at Lincoln Center:
In Austin, Texas, fifteen people influence what is taught to the next generation of American children. Once every decade, the highly politicized Texas State Board of Education rewrites the teaching and textbook standards for its nearly 5 million schoolchildren. And when it comes to textbooks, what happens in Texas affects the nation as a whole.
The Revisionaries follows the rise and fall of some of the most controversial figures in American education through some of their most tumultuous intellectual battles.
The discussion will follow the Saturday, 8:15 p.m. showing. You can buy tickets here.
