AUSTIN, Texas -- The State Board of Education next week is expected to consider what students should learn about Islam.
The Dallas Morning News reported Wednesday that the board will consider a resolution warning publishers not to push a pro-Islamic, anti-Christian viewpoint in world history textbooks.
Members of the board s social conservative bloc have asked for the resolution. A preliminary draft says diverse reviewers have repeatedly documented gross pro-Islamic, anti-Christian distortions in social studies texts across the U.S.
A spokeswoman for a religious freedom group, the Texas Freedom Network, says no textbooks cited by resolution sponsors are being used in Texas. Kathy Miller says current books offer a balanced treatment of the world s religions.
