Texas Textbooks Investigated for Islamic Bias

CSCOPE, a Texas curriculum development firm, was accused of “pro-Islamic bias” by a chain email — so, of course, an investigation was launched.

The result? A “72-page report — compiled by a former social studies teacher described by CSCOPE’s director as a “very socially and fiscally conservative” woman who “watches Glenn Beck on a regular basis” — found quite the opposite of any Islamic bias: If anything, Irving schools have a Christian bias.”
