TEKSWatch Update: State Legislature Considers Expert Requirement

The future of the Texas social studies standards (TEKS) is under consideration today in meetings of the Texas House Higher Education Committee and Senate Higher Education Committee. Legislators are considering two companion bills–HB 3263 by state Rep. Mark Strama (D-Austin) and SB 1348 by state Sen. Leticia Van de Putte (D-San Antonio)–that would create review teams composed of qualified scholars to review proposed curriculum changes before the State Board of Education can vote their final approval. The House meeting should begin around 2:00 p.m. and will be streamed live online.
