Texas State Board of Education to consider how Islam should be portrayed

The Dallas Morning News reported  that the Texas State Board of Education is planning to discuss what students should learn about Islam. The Board  will consider a resolution  that would warn publishers not to push a pro-Islamic, anti-Christian viewpoint in world history textbooks. The impetus for the resolution came from an unsuccessful candidate for a board seat, who called on the panel to head off any bias against Christians in new social studies books. Some contend that “Middle Easterners” are increasingly buying into companies that publish textbooks.
