While it is commendable that Scholastic decided to pull the material, something stands out in their official press release:

“After a thorough review of the original guide that we offered online to about 25,000 high school teachers, we determined that the materials did not meet our high standards for dealing with controversial issues,” said Dick Robinson, Chairman, President and CEO of Scholastic.

What is interesting is that Scholastic chose to do this "thorough review" after they already published it. For a corporation that is so active in the education of our children, shouldn't all their material demand a "through review" prior to release?

Now the final question remains - Will ABC to pull their two-night miniseries political ad, or will they do their part to divide our already fractured nation even more?

Can you help us out?
