Texas looks to rewrite history

Schoolbooks amended to correct "left leaning" bias in education.

    In the US state of Texas, the board of education is drafting its own version of American history.

    The board is changing school textbooks to correct what they say is a "left leaning" bias in education.

    But some say the changes have religious and racial overtones.

    As Al Jazeera's Kimberly Halkett reports, the changes could have a major impact on how history is taught across the US.
