I’m stuck in an airport in Cleveland waiting for some flight delays to clear up, but I am feeling cheerful. Don McLeroy is in trouble, and the Texas legislature is considering some revamping of their peculiar system.
The legislative session so far has not been kind to the State Board of Education.
Senate confirmation of Board Chairman Don McLeroy, R-College Station, is dead in the water, the Nominations Committee chairman said Thursday.
The House of Representatives approved a constitutional amendment Monday that would move the investment decisions about the $17.5 billion Permanent School Fund away from the board to an appointed council of financial professionals.
And a bipartisan group of senators has introduced a bill to take away the elected board’s authority over curriculum and textbooks.
They’re feeling the heat. Keep it up!
