On HB 710, Texas Students Lose

As with many things related to our State Board of Education, a very important and very disappointing development quietly took place yesterday, this time in the Lege. HB 710, a bill that would make the SBOE subject to Sunset review, went down 71-73 after being read for the third time this session.

On May 5th, HB 710 was read for the second time with a record vote of 74-68 in favor of making the SBOE subject to Sunset Review. After this vote, Representatives Eissler (R-The Woodlands) and McCall (R-Plano) switched their votes from yea to nay.
