As Marxist teachers strike, demanding the latest in Common Core brainwashing techniques (they’ll tell you they don’t use it, but they are bold-faced lying, or ignorant of reality), a photograph of a tattered eighth-grade history book aired by some national media last week did not accurately represent the condition of textbooks in Owasso, even for that grade or subject, the assistant superintendent for Owasso Public Schools said Monday.
One of the reasons it’s not over yet…This is a textbook from my daughter’s class. It’s a history book and the current President in it is George W. Bush. We can do better Oklahoma. #OklahomaTeacherWalkout#oklaed #oklaleg @gophouseok @oksenategop @housedemsok @oksenatedems pic.twitter.com/F5FE3JcFQh

“It is absolutely not accurate,” said Amy Fichtner, assistant superintendent for the district of nearly 10,000 students near Tulsa.
“‘Far-fetched’ is the word that comes to mind.”
Fichtner has been responding to parents and others in the district since a photo was posted by a Twitter user and picked up by some media organizations covering the teacher strike. The Twitter user, who did not give a name, said his daughter took a picture of the book and that she was in eighth grade in Owasso, reports NewsOK.
In the photo, the book’s cover was missing and the pages were folded over and tattered.
“This is a textbook from my daughter’s class,” the Twitter user wrote. “It’s a history book and the current President in it is George W. Bush. We can do better Oklahoma.”
Reporters from ABC, CNN, Vice News, PBS and other organizations covering the teacher walkout contacted the Twitter user asking for permission to use the photo. CNN, PBS and USA Today are among the outlets who had stories online on Monday featuring the photo.
