The Williamson County School Board meeting was nearly at capacity as it began Monday night.

The majority of residents, parents and activists were on hand to protest the use of a controversial textbook being used in some high school classes.

“The Cultural Landscape: An Introduction to Human Geography 10th Edition” is considered by some to be anti-Semitic.

On Monday school board members decided the book will remain in Williamson County schools for at least another year.

“We do not tolerate anti- Semitism in the United States of America, now we have a textbook that is promoting and teaching anti-Semitic views to our children,” parent Laurie Cardoza Moore said.

The controversial textbook is used in some Advanced Placement Human Geography courses.
