For many decades, Texas was the must-sell-to state for textbook publishers that also pushed for the removal or de-emphasis of evolutionary science. In large part, that was the work of the husband and wife team of Mel and Norma Gabler, both of them deceased now.

Their work, though, seems to have been passed on. Texas will be going through another round of textbook selection over the next year or so. We can already see some warning signs that this will be no different than before; the antievolutionists clearly have this process in their sights.

This thread is for news and commentary on the process in Texas.
