TFN Insider Keeps You Informed on SBOE

TFN Insider will be blogging live from the State Board of Education meeting this week as board members decide what the next generation of Texas public school students learn in their public school classrooms.

The Wednesday public hearing begins at 9 a.m. and is likely to last all day and into the evening. The Texas Freedom Network has scheduled a public rally in front of the Texas Education Agency building — 17th and Congress in downtown Austin — at 1 p.m.
