VICTORY: Texas State Board of Education approves science textbooks based on established science
Texas State Board of Education (SBOE) has the power to vote on science materials that will be in classrooms for the next decade. And for years, an anti-science faction of that board has done all it can to undermine the science of evolution and climate change by giving equal weight to nonscientific beliefs like climate change denial and the idea that dinosaurs and humans coexisted.
Nearly 20,000 CREDO members signed a petition to stand up for science, and the Texas State Board of Education cast a final vote to approve science textbooks based on established science.
