Common Core Lite bills Headed to Abbott


"Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea."
Matthew 18:6

[Update: Donna Garner has more here.]

SB 313 and HB 2811 are the Common Core lite bills Dan Huberty and Kel Seliger sneaked through at the end of the session; Donna Garner has more:
[5.26.15 – The Texas Senate passed SB 313 on third reading today with an unofficial vote of 125 yeas, 19 nays, 2 present, not voting.  I have highlighted in red the 19 who voted against SB 313. They are our heroes/heroines.  SB 303 now goes to Gov. Abbott for his signature.  Please join with me in contacting his office to register your concerns.  Below, I have posted the link to my article entitled “Open Letter to the Texas Legislature, Education Bills SB 313/HB 2811” dated 5.25.15.
