INDEPENDENT LENS: "THE REVISIONARIES"
January 28, 2013  | By David Bianculli

PBS, 10:00 p.m. ET

 
It’s no secret that the textbooks from Texas, for decades, have been the tail wagging the national dog – but this 2011 documentary by director Scott Thurman hones in on some aggressive new moves by the Texas State Board of Education to question evolution and push creationism in their state’s science books. However, since this documentary was made, the Texas State legislature shifted control to local school districts, which makes the problem more complicated but less monolithic. In any event, The Revisionaries is just what you’d want a documentary on textbooks to be: educational. Check local listings.
