As part of their argument against the adoption of the Houghton Mifflin history/social science textbook series in 1991, a group of parents, students, educators and community activists calling themselves Communities United against Racism in Education (CURE) analyzed the kindergarten through fifth-grade texts. In an easy-to-read format, this analysis uses quotes from the texts and discusses both blatant and subtle biases and distortions inherent in these passages. We have made this 86-page analysis available in the hope that others will find it useful as a model.
