TALLAHASSEE - A proposed bill may change who decides what instructional material is used in classrooms.

State Sen. Alan Hays' bill is up for discussion Wednesday in Tallahassee.

If approved, local school boards will have the power to select instructional material for all grade levels.

Currently, the state decides.

The bill came after Volusia County parents protested a particular history book they said focused too much on Islam.
