State Board of Education meets next week on social studies curriculum revisions

The SBOE will meet next Tuesday through Friday for review and revision of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for social studies. That process undoubtedly will be affected by recent anti-diversity and inclusion legislation (HB 3979) aimed to censor teachers.

The bill requires revisions to be completed by December of 2022. The long process starts with the board appointing content experts and then writing teams to review and revise the TEKS. If you are interested in volunteering to serve on the SBOE writing teams, stay tuned to the Hotline for a link to the application coming soon.
