Revisionist history

There has been a lot of absolutely horrifying news coverage of the fallout from Louisiana's new law offering private-school vouchers to poor and middle-class students. Thanks to Gov. Bobby Jindal's voucher program, Louisiana will be sending tens of millions of dollars to these schools, even the ones using textbooks that:
A) Teach "creationist nonscience",
B) Suggest that dinosaurs and humans existed simultaneously,
C) Argue that slave owners were actually pretty nice guys,
and (this one's my favorite)...
D) describe the hippie movement as a group of rude, dirty Satanists.
Sometimes I'm grateful my grandfather died a few years ago. His head would have exploded. Thankfully, last December a Louisiana state court declared the voucher program unconstitutional, but the state is currently appealing that decision.
