On The Spot: Alamo education changes

In early September, an advisory panel to the Texas Board of Education suggested a change in 7th grade history teaching, restricting teachers from describing the defenders of the Alamo as “heroic.” They also advised the removal of Lt. Col. William B. Travis’s letter addressed “To the People of Texas and All Americans in the World.” However, according to Texas Tribune, the State Board voted on Sept. 11 to reject the change. Lovejoy community members share their opinion on this proposed change and altering how schools can teach history.
