7:45 p.m. – Ok, folks. We’re going to hang in here until they finish, but we don’t expect you to. We’ll skip the live-blog tonight and post a recap tomorrow morning. We’ll watch so you don’t have to. Be safe out there.
5:40 – If this is true, then the science hearing is likely to be pushed back even further into the night:

5:30 p.m. – Still waiting for the science portion of the hearing to begin. It’s looking like we might be in for a long night.
2:05 p.m. – The state board is still considering a separate matter. So the hearing on the science textbooks is not likely to start until late this afternoon. Stay tuned.
We will be live-blogging from the State Board of Education‘s hearing today on proposed new science textbooks for Texas public schools. The hearing was set to start officially at 1 p.m., but other board business is pushing that start time until later. Textbooks adopted by the state board on Friday will go into classrooms beginning in fall 2014 and will guide what a generation of Texas students learn about evolution and climate change.
