Steve Schafersman has some great reporting and pictures of the State Board of Education public hearings of the K-12 school science standards.
Much more lively looking than I was expecting. Much more press coverage than I would have expected.
Additional: The Texas Freedom Network also have someone liveblogging the hearings. I am surprised by the sheer marathon nature of these hearings... The meeting started at 9:00 am. The science standards started at 4:00 pm. The most recent blog post is 9:38 pm, and it's still going, as far as I can tell.
