VICTORY: Texas Board of Education Adopts Sound Science Textbooks

TexasBOE

When the Texas Board of Education started working on its once-a-decade selection of science textbooks for Texas classrooms, an anti-science faction tried to force it to give equal weight to nonscientific beliefs like climate change denial and the idea that humans and dinosaurs coexisted. Kathy Miller and the Texas Freedom Network stepped up, creating a MoveOn Petition that asked the Board of Education to stand up for science. The petition received thousands of signatures, and science won out: The board voted to approve textbooks based on established science rather than giving in to anti-science climate change and evolution deniers.
