Texas Textbook Changes Unlikely to Spread?

"I don't believe the Texas curriculum will spread anyplace else," says an education market researcher in the article. Is that good enough? Tell you what: how about a majority Muslim schoolboard (at a public school) in Detroit starts adding references to European brutality during the Crusades, the superiority of Shari'a, and ends with a long section about the Christian world's unjust hand in creating modern Israel and the Partition in South Asia - would it be good enough that the changes are unlikely to spread? Would it be good enough to allow it to stand in even one school district, let alone a whole state?
