And the Oscar nominated filmmaker is from Amarillo

In Austin, Texas, 15 people influence what is taught to the next generation of American children. Once every decade, the highly politicized Texas State Board of Education rewrites the teaching and textbook standards for its nearly 5 million schoolchildren. And when it comes to textbooks, what happens in Texas affects the nation as a whole.That's what makes this film so compelling...an elected board of education influencing the very basis of learning through their ideas and ideology - not scientific fact. Watch tonight and tell us what you think.
