New Social Studies TEKS in Texas

When I reviewed the draft from the summer the secondary school changes were mostly semantic with little real content change.  The only problem I had was the removal of Locke's Second Treatise from the 12th grade civics curriculum.  Teaching American government without it would be similar to teaching chemistry without a periodic table.  The new draft after the political show this past week will not be posted until May.  I love how the hearings are held in the afternoon on weekdays which precludes the attendance of many history teachers.
