It's been almost two months since the position for the Director of Science curriculum of the Texas Education Agency closed. This used to be Chris Comer's job.
And yet, the contacts list for the TEA Science Unit still shows no replacement.
Now, hiring someone in a bureaucracy can take a long time. I've been a search committee chair in a university -- I know this firsthand. But I wonder how long it will take to fill? Will it fill before the science standards are reviewed? Will there be any attention from the media, blogosphere, and the like when it does fill?
