We want to remind you of a fast-approaching deadline.
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has begun the process of appointing individuals to review new social studies textbooks the State Board of Education (SBOE) will adopt in 2014.
The deadline to sign up is January 24.
It’s critical that truly qualified individuals serve on the review teams and counter far-right efforts to politicize the textbooks. That’s especially important because the new textbooks must cover controversial curriculum standards that distort the history of slavery, civil rights, separation of church and state and other sensitive topics.
Please share this post anyone you think might also be interested in serving on a review team.
To help us ensure that TEA and SBOE members give your application the serious consideration it deserves, it’s very important that you let us know that you have signed up to serve on a review team. Send an email to email@example.com and let us know you have applied.
Don’t let far-right SBOE members and their supporters whitewash our history and use social studies textbooks to promote their political agendas.
