More Textbook Controversy

Gary Fouse



                                                        Hat tip Townhall and Patriot Update                                                                                                                                                    

We have reported before here on various school textbooks that our children are reading that give a misleading portrait of Islam. Now there is another textbook controversy brewing in Florida over Prentice's World History. Todd Starnes in Townhall has the report.


In this book, which I perused online, no mention is made of any Islamic war or fighting  until after the death of the Prophet Mohammad. That is misleading if not completely inaccurate.  Schoolchildren in the Islamic world are not misled about those things. Why should children here be misled? As I have said before, if schools cannot teach true history to pupils when these sensitive subjects come up, it is better to stay away from religion altogether. False history has no place in our schools.
