I thank you for the opportunity to address the proposed changes in the schedule for adoption of the Social Studies textbooks.

I appreciate that our members found errors and examples of theories being presented as facts and had other concerns about some of the textbooks. Textbook publishers have been responsive to our concerns and we look forward to working with you and others on the Social Studies textbooks.

State braces for battle over textbooks

BY Jim Suydam

The debate to determine what social studies and history texts Texas schoolchildren will read over the next six years will begin in earnest Friday, as the State Board of Education sets the schedule for public input. Already advocates are lining up on opposing sides to influence the selection, and the rhetoric has grown heated. In November, the board is set to vote on which of more than 200 texts submitted by publishers should be placed on a list from which school districts may choose.

In reviewing the program's structure, Conti found that two employees hired about 10 years ago through company that places temporary workers still had those contract jobs.

He was indicted in January on six felony charges of holding fake Pakistani passports and U.S. employment documents.

Oregon CSE Helps Stop New Tax Increases

Victory for Florida’s Taxpayers!

Tallahassee, FL-- Yesterday, the Florida House of Representatives passed HJR 87, “The Limitation on State Appropriations Amendment,” to limit the growth of government to a sustainable level. Passage of this legislation was at the top of Florida CSE’s issue agenda for 2002. Introduced by State Representative Rob Wallace (R-Tampa), the bill would limit state spending to the previous year’s appropriation plus an adjustment for growth. The growth adjustment would be calculated with a simple formula that adds the growth of the Consumer Price Index (CPI) to Florida’s population growth. This new spending limit would take effect January 1, 2003 if State Representative Wallace’s amendment passes both houses of the state legislature by wide margins and is approved by Florida voters in the November 2002 general election.
