Congratulations to the Texas State Board of Education on exhibiting common sense in deciding to #rejectthetext !!!
Today the TSBOE voted unanimously (w/ one Republican member absent; Bradley) 14-0 to NOT adopt the racists and discriminatory textbook Mexican American Heritage.
Let’s not bust out the piñatas just yet though, raza. This was just a preliminary vote and while it’s optimistic to think they’ll vote the same way on Friday, there’s still a day and a half for the publisher to answer submissions on errors.
While it seems unlikely, it’s still possible that those “answers” might sway votes. Especially since Momentum Instruction, the publishing company drawing this negative attention, is using a former member of the TSBOE, Cynthia Dunbar, as the lead on this proposal.
Aver que pasa …
