TN Lawmakers Request Textbook Review
The heads of two Tennessee state legislative committees say the process for selecting books for state schools needs to be fixed.
Senate Education Committee Chairwoman Dolores Gresham and Senate Government Operations Committee Chairman Mike Bell have sent a letter to the State Board of Education asking the panel to re-examine the list of books recommended by the state Textbook Commission.
The two committees heard testimony from parents earlier this month about the content of books.
Gresham said the testimony revealed "inaccuracies" and "biases" in some of the books used by K-12 students.
