Islam, climate change targets of latest textbook battle
by Mark Wiggins
Rows of empty seats marked the final day of public testimony over school textbooks before the Texas State Board of Education.
About two dozen signed up to testify as the board considered last-minute changes to history and social studies materials after months of review.
"We want to make sure we have the correct information in the textbooks," said Roy White with Truth in Texas Textbooks Coalition. The organization released hundreds of pages of suggested corrections, including to texts characterizing the U.S. as a democracy rather than a constitutional republic.
