Good call, guys.

Hey, all right: according to the Associated Press, the Virginia elementary school textbook we wrote about last week that featured the inaccurate claim that thousands of black troops fought for the Confederacy will be corrected and reprinted early next year. (The publisher is offering white stickers to cover the incorrect sentence in the meanwhile.) This is particularly good news, because early information about this gaffe suggested that Virgina education officials were planning to hang onto the book, but "caution [school districts] against teaching the passage".
