AUSTIN, Texas – The Texas State Board of Education adopted a social studies and history curriculum Friday that amends or waters down the teaching of the civil rights movement, slavery, America's relationship with the U.N. and hundreds of other items.
Conservatives say the Texas history curriculum has been unfairly skewed to the left after years of Democrats controlling the board.
