The future of your child's education will be decided this week. The Texas State Board of Education will vote on new textbooks, but not everyone is happy about what could be taught between the covers of school books.
"In the long term, it's really dangerous to interject one's liberal or conservative views and try to turn that into historical fact," said Professor Bob Buzzanco with the University of Houston.
Professor Buzzanco says he's surprised to hear some of the content included in proposed US history books; for example, that Moses had a direct influence on the founding fathers and the idea that all international terrorism is tied to Islam.
