Event Description

The Texans for Truthful Textbooks rally is organized to protest the Texas State Board of Education's recent decision to inject conservative politics and personal agendas into the state's textbook curriculum by changing the social studies standards in several significant ways. The curriculum standards, originally developed by teachers and scholars, were altered over a period of two board meetings without consulting with the appropriate subject-matter experts and represent a blatant attempt at revisionist history. The May 16th date was chosen specifically because the TSBE is meeting that week to hold a final vote to accept the textbook changes.

I'm dying to go to this, but my flight doesn't get into Austin till 9:30 that night. If there's anything I can do to help beforehand, make signs, canvass my neighborhood, I'd be glad to help.
