The Orleans Parish School Board in Louisiana voted recently to bar creationism or "intelligent design" from being taught in its schools and prohibit the use of any history textbooks that have been changed to include Christianity. Specifically, the board's action bans any textbook that has been changed "in accordance with the State of Texas revisionist guidelines," referring to action taken in 2010 by the Texas State Board of Education to change its social studies and history curriculum.
