Will Texas be the first for African American studies?
Public comments for statewide adoption of African American Studies will be Wednesday, November 13th. I encourage anyone with interest in the course to speak before our Board on the importance of adoption and maintaining factual integrity. The curriculum framework can be found here https://www.ginatxsboe1.com/aas.html
Public comments will be considered during the First Reading in January 2020 and Second Reading in April 2020, so please be sure to leave a one-pager and contact information.
Instructions on how to register for testimony can be found here https://tea.texas.gov/About_TEA/Leadership/State_Board_of_Education/SBOE_Meetings/Public_Testimony_Registration_Instructions_and_Procedures
You will need to know the specific item number, date, and committee. The window for registration is Friday, 11/8 at 8am to Monday 11/11 at 5pm. Each individual will need to register themselves, and there are no limits to how many individuals can register to speak.
I’m truly thankful for your advocacy.
