INDEPENDENT LENS: The Revisionaries

Independent Lens "INDEPENDENT LENS: The Revisionaries"
Airs Monday, January 28 at 09:00 PM

Witness an ongoing culture war raging in Texas -- a tempest in a textbook. The state's Board of Education has been engaged in a pitched, years-long battle over what belongs (and doesn't) in public school textbooks. Legislators, educators, parents and students debate the facts and the theories -- including what constitutes a fact versus a theory. The chair of the Board of Education fights tirelessly to include intelligent design in science books, while a board member argues to exclude mention of the slave trade and the Enlightenment in history books. The result is a chaotic scene, with the next generation's education held hostage.
