We don't need no critical thinking...

From the dossier called 2012 Platform of the Republican Party of Texas (Word version | PDF version) at
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

(Emphasis mine)

Hey, Texas Republicans, leave them kids alone!
