It appears that their fear is that these “focus on behavior modification and have the purpose of challenging the student’s fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority.” Think about that for a moment.

Last month, the Republican Party of Texas approved its platform for the 2012 election campaign.

As for a re-labeling of OBE, I don't have the wherewithal to connect the two styles, but it seems the GOP platform is saying "We're for traditional educational styles, rather than progressive educational tactics like OBE or HOTS."Reading the rest of the section preceding and following this, you can see the Texas GOP is more interested in instituting the parents as an authority on what children learn and when.

We STILL hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

This begs the question, who is really aiming to force their beliefs on our children, Texas schools or Texas Republicans?

Personally, I prefer what I learned during my twelve years of Catholic school and eight years of public higher education: if a belief cannot stand up to scrutiny, then we shouldn’t believe it; and if it does, we will hold it all the more strongly for the very reason that it withstood our challenge.

Officials in the town government, no doubt channeling national rhetoric, often told me that encouraging lifelong education and learning generates mentally engaged and healthy people and this, in turn, leads to a healthy society.

The Japanese seem to have long recognized that a well-educated populace with people who can think critically and creatively is a fundamental element in ensuring a positive future.

For democracy to work well, people need to have the critical thinking skills necessary to analyze and question the actions of their leaders.

Beyond this, not only does a healthy democracy demand critical thinking skills, so does a capitalist economy.
