Islamic bias in Brevard textbook? Lawmaker, others raise questions
by Mackenzie Ryan
Two Brevard School Board members are reviewing a world history textbook used in ninth grade Advance Placement classes amid concerns that it is biased in favor of Islam — at the expense of Christianity and Judaism.
House Representative Ritch Workman and individuals from two citizens groups spoke against the textbook, Prentice Hall World History, at the Brevard School Board meeting Tuesday, citing examples of phrases and passages they believe show bias.
"Our children deserve facts and accuracy, not history being revised for our own failure or desire to not offend one culture or another," said Workman, a Republican from Melbourne.
