Do we have your attention?

Good, because the next three days will go a long way toward determining how history is taught in Texas — and around the country — for the next generation. Here’s how you can follow the action.

Tuesday

Come out in person or watch our live stream on our Facebook page

SBOE public hearing (all day)
Follow along on TFN’s Twitter feed

Wednesday

SBOE hearing and board vote begins @ 9:30 am
TFN will be live-tweeting (and live fact-checking!) every vote the board takes.
Follow along and join the conversation using #TeachTheTruth

Thursday

TFN will send a quick wrap-up of the important moments and votes.
And tell you what you can do to make sure students learn accurate, unbiased history.

We can’t begin to heal all the divisions in our state and country if we continue to lie about our history. Help us make this week a historic turn toward teaching the truth in Texas.

Spread the love
