Texas history row
Members of the Texas State Board of Education claim there is a pro- Islamic bias in world history books. Last week, the board passed a resolution calling on textbook publishers to limit what they print about Islam. The resolution claimed the history books that board members looked at devoted more lines to Islam than they did to Christianity. The heavily evangelical Christian board voted earlier this year to insert several conservative and Christian messages into the statewide history curriculum. Critics accuse board members of trying to rewrite history.
