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.
