Many of you have been waiting and asking us for it, and here it is. Today the Texas Freedom Network Education Fund released our 2012 State Board of Education Voter Guide for the Nov. 6 general election. All 15 SBOE seats will be on the ballot.

You can find the voter guide at, and you can download a printable version of the guide here (PDF file).
