Keep Science in Texas Textbooks



Austin , TX United States

Please join us in making sure evolution and climate science are taught in Texas science classrooms.

Texas is adopting new science textbooks at the State Board of Education and these books will be used for ten years. The adoption of textbooks in Texas is the most important adoption process around the country. Texas is such a large state that textbook publishers base their textbooks, which are sold all around the country, on what Texas adopts.

Here’s how you can help out:

Show up at the State Board of Education and testify in support of science textbooks that teach real science (more information on this will be updated as the hearing approach).

Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper.
