Rejection by the Textbook Purchasing Board

(p.146) Chapter Seven Controversy
Civil Rights, Culture Wars

After the Rating Committee for Mississippi history textbooks voted against Conflict and Change, the State Textbook Purchasing Board rejected it. Without the board’s approval, school districts could not purchase it with state funds. Racial issues, especially violence and lynching, caused the most objections from John M. Turnipseed, W. A. Matthews, and others. Loewen and Sallis’s appeals to the Board and to the governor failed.
