Episode: Witness a Texas Showdown Over Teaching Standards
Once every decade, the highly politicized Texas State Board of Education rewrites the teaching and textbook standards for its nearly five million schoolchildren. When an unabashed creationist seeks re-election as chairman, the theory of evolution and U.S. history are caught in the crosshairs, which could impact the classroom curricula not only of Texas, but also of the nation as a whole.• Visit the Witness a Texas Showdown Over Teaching Standards webpage
