Tonight, we introduced you to Don McLeroy, pictured above, a Texas dentist, self-described "Christian fundamentalist" and elected Board of Education member. He is pushing for more focus on conservative leaders and issues — and less of what he calls liberal bias in school textbooks. No doubt some in the educational establishment will criticize the efforts, but that won't necessarily keep those lessons from textbooks that will be taught at schools across the country. So tonight, we ask: Do you think America's textbooks are too liberal? Or is this wrongly politicizing the classroom? Tell us what you think. ——————– UPDATE: Here is the Dan Harris report "The Texas Textbook Controversy."
