Diane Ravitch is a scholar, historian, author and Department of Education director under Clinton and Bush. She has documented how easy it is for special interest groups to get words banned by pressuring small groups of educators in large states like California. Her book The Language Police explains how a tiny minority can get textbooks and reference books altered to frame a political mindset which is not reflective of the majority of Americans. [1][2]
