- Importance of the confirmation by the Texas Senate of Barbara Cargill as chair of the Texas State Board of Education (SBOE)
- CSCOPE — a highly questionable curriculum used in almost 80% of Texas public schools – operating under the radar
Thomas Ratliff – Registered Lobbyist – SBOE Rep.
Excerpt from letter sent from an SBOE member to Donna Garner, 7.23.11:
Thomas Ratliff voted for electronic instructional materials that all require Microsoft software. We even encountered prompts to download Microsoft downloads/updates to access materials. With SB6, the Computer technology lobby bill, the SBOE determines the amount of $$ (50%) distributed to the ASF for district’s instructional material allotment. Ratliff is even on the PSF committee that will develop the recommendation. Senate committee video/ (and registration) will show him testifying that he LOVED this bill.
- Importance of the election of Ken Mercer as Vice Chair of the SBOE Executive Committee
Just Breaking: In response to an e-mail asking Pat Hardy who she would be supporting for vice-chair for the SBOE.
