|A bizarre chain email sent to district and school board officials in the Dallas area this October titled "IRVING ISD INDOCTRINATING ISLAM" inspired a recent investigation of "Islamic bias" in the district's curriculum. Despite the outlandish claims, the district requested that an official from the organization that created the curriculum to respond. The results of a 72-page investigation done by the organization were not surprising: there's a Christian bias in schools, not a Muslim one.
The official told the board that a bias toward Islam didn't exist, even mentioning that "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 [the curriculum]." She "asked her to look for anything she would consider the least bit controversial."
