We signed off our live-blogging before letting folks know what happens next with the Texas public school science standards. Now that the public hearings are over, the State Board of Education on Thursday will consider any changes to the proposed standards. Then board members may take a preliminary vote followed by a formal vote the next day (Friday) on whether to approve the standards on First Reading. The board must then adopt the standards in a final vote in March. Keep an eye here on TFN Insider for updates!
