    •  That would be nice for a diary (4+ / 0-)

      I know very little about the Texas Board of Education, just that it has a disproportionate influence over textbooks for the US. Texas is the largest single market for textbooks in the us: get your product approved there for purchase, & that will allow you to sell your textbook cheaper to other school districts.

      But how the wingnuts get elected to it (I know, not everyone in Texas is a RWNJ), who is on the Board & what their agenda is, how they get their agenda shoved thru, etc., that is something I'd like to read about.
