3. And, is the debate really over? See:

* Suggestions that a new board or governor could fix things

* A debate about whether national standards would help or harm

* California’s attempt to legally prohibit Texas textbooks

[P.S. the Texas legislators who spoke so openly have been silent since the vote]
