Tara Lohan at AlterNet: Texas School District Investigates Muslim Bias in School, Finds Christian Bias Instead

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:

The director, Jan Moberly, said she hired a “very socially and fiscally conservative” former social studies teacher who “watches Glenn Beck on a regular basis” to seek out any Islamic bias in CSCOPE.

Guess what Moberly found? There was religious bias, but in fact it was a bias against Islam. Christianity got the highest billing, with twice as many mentions as any other religion in CSCOPE.
