Editor's Note: Watch Gary Tuchman's full report tonight on AC360° at 10pm eastern
I'm sitting in a hearing room right now in the Texas state capital of Austin, watching 15 adults wrangle with their ideas of how Texas children should be taught history.
The Texas Board of Education will vote tonight on amendments they want added (and taken away) from the history and social studies curriculum of the state's nearly five million students.
Much of what will be changed is the result of the work of religious conservatives on the board. They say they are putting a "more accurate" history in their students' textbooks. Liberal members of the board say what is being done is changing history by adding opinion. Inside this hearing room, not surprisingly, it is getting heated.
We'll have the story tonight on AC360° at 10pm ET.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
