If you missed the October screenings of The Revisionaries, the new documentary about the battles over evolution at the Texas State Board of Education, don't despair. The film is returning to Houston, with a screening at 5:00 p.m. on December 22, at 14 Pews, 800 Aurora Street in Houston. Tickets are $11; only a limited number of tickets are available.
"Once in a decade, the 15 members of the Texas State Board of Education meet in Austin to revise the textbook standards for five million schoolchildren. Led by Don McLeroy, a Young-Earth Creationist and Evangelical Christian, the panel implements standards that will ultimately go into effect in science and history textbooks for schoolchildren across the nation. The Revisionaries is a galvanizing peek behind the curtain at the politicization of education."
