More on the Texas SBOE’s rejection of a third grade math book. Now the majority has voted to strike the minority reports from the official record of the board’s minutes. It seems that while our San Antonio representative couldn’t bring himself to vote on the original matter, he has joined the majority in censoring the minority.

I have spent the last two days looking for anything on these candidates and have found nothing. You have to wonder, if we the people think education is a top issue why isn’t there a huge uproar? I understand the state board of education doesn’t have a huge glitz factor but they have much more to do with what happens in texas schools than anyone in Washington.
