The Texas State Board of Education continues to make Texas a national laughingstock.
What can you do to make a difference?
Over and over again the board has demonstrated a destructive ignorance toward every subject it is tasked to set curriculum standards for, from science to social studies the results are disastrous. That is why this is a campaign to reform the State Board of Education, not a campaign focused on one subject area.
