This is definitely of interest to me. I am currently working on an essay that is centered on conservative/Christian Right takeovers of local school boards such as is the case in Woodland Park, Colorado. One of the objectives in examining this area of concern is to develop an understanding of the social integration and system integration of the Christian Right across its spectrum of actors, agents, and all involved institutions. Especially with regards to Education.
