The Texas GOP would like to discourage thought. Numéro Cinq doesn’t know which side of the issue to come down on. Arguably critical thought does waste a lot of energy that could be used more productively keeping up with Justin and Kim.

Knowledge-Based Education – We oppose the teaching of Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) (values clarification), critical thinking skills and similar programs that are simply a relabeling of Outcome-Based Education (OBE) (mastery learning) which focus on behavior modification and have the purpose of challenging the student’s fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority.
