The Academics of Textbooks Get Political

Hosted by

Back in 1925, the Scopes trial raised the question of what should and should not be taught in school — specifically, evolution versus creationism. Eighty-five years later, that debate is still going strong.  In Texas, questions are being raised about if and how the political and religious beliefs of elected officials should influence classroom content, from science to history. Also, more help for struggling homeowners, and the government rights an age-old wrong for black farmers.  Chery Glaser guest hosts.
