The Texas Board of Education is considering adding a Mexican-American studies course as a statewide high school elective.
Critics dismiss the proposal as an attempt to inject progressive politics into the classroom.
The board's 10 Republicans and five Democrats will hold a public hearing Tuesday, then vote on possible new courses later in the week.
