Instructions for testifying at SBOE Hearing for Tuesday, November 15, 2016

This is it. The Texas State Board of Education is set to hold its final hearing on the deeply flawed and deeply offensive Mexican-American Heritage textbook next week, on Tuesday, November 15.

Let's get straight to the point: We need your voice.

We're cautiously optimistic that the board will #RejectTheText but that will only happen if they hear from you.

The registration period for those wishing to testify at the hearing opened this morning and will remain open until 5 p.m. on Monday, November 14.

We urge you to sign up to testify. Details instructions for testifying can be found here.

We need a diversity of voices telling the SBOE that this simplistic, offensive and error-plagued textbook has no place anywhere near a public school classroom.

Your involvement on this issue will never be more important than it will be next week. Whether you choose to testify, attend the SBOE hearing on Tuesday, November 15 at 9:30 a.m., or share the petition with your network, we need your help for this fight.

On behalf of the Responsible Ethnic Studies Textbook coalition,

Val Benavidez, Texas Freedom Network
