Texas Board Ready for Next Round in Social Studies Debate

If the upcoming common-standards webinars Catherine blogged about aren't tantalizing enough for you, there's sure to be some lively testimony tomorrow in the Lone Star State. The Texas state board of education is resuming discussion of the controversial effort to revamp the state's social studies standards. I'm told that at least 50 people will be testifying starting tomorrow. The event is scheduled for live-streaming online, beginning at 11 a.m. Central time. To watch it, go to the Texas Education Agency home page.

Don't be surprised to hear some provocative debate about what people and events are most important for Texas students to know about. Phyllis Schlafly or Cesar Chavez? You decide.
