High Schooler Sounds Alarm on Textbook

This AP story about a high school senior who found multiple examples of biases in his U.S. government textbook and proceeded to make those biases public, is a great example of one student who is actively engaged in his education. No matter what your political stance, you've got to give the kid credit for both knowing enough about politics and government to be able to dispute controversial sections of his textbook and for being passionate enough about his discoveries to bring them to the attention of the public.

From the last few paragraphs of the article, it sounds like this may be just the beginning of a long line of academic and truth alarm ringing this high schooler might be doing throughout his lifetime.
