Without being able to scan in the page (or pages) in question I don't know if I can give you a definitive answer. The Table of contents of the book does list that dinosaurs are discussed on page 28. If you page through the book, it is a very, very skewed view of pretty much everything in there, slanted towards the creationist viewpoint (the preview only goes to page 5). I suppose I could waste the $3.30 to find out, but this level of silliness is not worthy of a single penny from me.
A christian site itself repeats this story. Remember, the level of absolute denial of evidence and (I will opine) crazy required to accept literal creationism is probably foreign to most people. The lengths of the lies they will go to to promote their bronze age fairy tales sadly do not surprise me in the slightest. Sadly, there are kids in Louisiana (and other places) that do get lied to on such a grand and gross scale (yes, they even deny nuclear fusion is happening in the sun...). This interview discusses some of the "finer" points of this type of education.
the students have to work in silence in these cubicles that they make for them, and there’s no social interaction. I think that educationally it’s quite damaging. They’re not allowed to question anything. I think that the purpose of education has to be to learn how to find stuff out for yourself. You can’t do that if you’re telling children, “No, this is all that you’re allowed to know, and this is all that you’re allowed to think.”
Keep in mind, these books are specifically marketed to homeschooling christians, and christian schools that currently are not part of the publicly funded education system. As such, they should not be in the public schools, although given the behaviour of legislators in Louisiana, I think many wish these books were in there.
Keep in mind, these books are not only in Louisiana. As the interview link states:
Accelerated Christian Education is a fundamentalist curriculum that started in Texas, and now it’s used in more than 5,000 schools around the world. Australia is one of the bigger, busier clients for accelerated Christian education outside of the U.S.
Yes, I weep for the poor children that are getting cheated of a reality based education.
