Print and Visual New Media from Yesterday's Historic SBOE Press Conference, Rally and TX SBOE Sept. 13, 2016 Hearing

Friends,

Many thanks to Dan Quinn, Communications Director for the Texas Freedom Network, who has provided us with an up-to-date list of all the print and visual media news reports subsequent to yesterday's historic press conference, rally and Texas School Board of Education hearing on the proposed textbook by Jaime Riddle and Valarie Angle titled, MEXICAN AMERICAN HERITAGE.

This work by Dan, reflects the successful work of the REST Coalition.  Glad we're all in this together!

USA Today just hired a new Austin-based reporter a week or so ago, and on Monday I alerted him about our rally and the hearing. Was glad to see him come and write about this.
