    Texas School District Investigates Muslim Bias in School, Finds Christian Bias Instead


    Islamophobia has been spreading like wildfire across Texas. Avi Selk reported today that a chain email sent to the Irving school district and across Texas made some waves. Selk writes, "Back in late October, someone named Ginger Russell sent a chain email with the subject 'IRVING ISD INDOCTRINATING ISLAM' to school board members and district officials" and other emails instructed Christians to "stand up against the pro Islamic teaching in our public schools."

    The alleged indoctrination had to do with the fact that the district uses a state-wide teaching program called CSCOPE, which is put together by the Texas Education Service Center Curriculum Collaborative, administered by an organization called Region 10 .

    Selk writes that district officials took the claims seriously enough to reach out to Region 10, which tried to reassure the school's board members that the program meets all state requirements. When that wasn't enough they hired someone to review the curriculum for Islamic bias. Selk writes:

    Since the United States was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, it is impossible for US history to be accurately portrayed without its religious basis. I know this drives the secular revisionists crazy, but it is the truth. (Why doesn't it set them free?)
