The non-partisan Texan Freedom Network is acting locally to raise awareness of the religious right in Texas. A recent announcement was brought to our attention by a commenter's post on our Facebook page.
Because of redistricting, all 15 seats on the Texas State Board of Education [SBOE] will be up for grabs in the November 2012 elections. The results of those elections will determine whether the Religious Right’s corrosive influence over public education will weaken or grow as the board considers what the next generation of public school students in Texas will learn about sex education, social studies, science, and other subjects. We plan to publish candidate announcements for a seat on the SBOE on TFN Insider. We will publish announcements in no particular order, and their publication does not constitute any sort of endorsement by TFN. We will redact requests for contributions or mentions of fundraising events from the announcements, but we will provide links to the candidates’ websites (if available). ~Texas Freedom Network
