The Texas House Appropriations Bill (HB1) as filed does not include funds for supplemental science instructional materials.  Nevertheless, STAT continues to express its opinion of the necessity of new textbooks and other learning materials to keep up with the changing curriculum and testing requirements.

STAT Legislative Committee Chair Sandra West Moody again today testified before the State Board of Education of the importance of these new resources in the classroom.  State Senator Florence Shapiro, chair of the Senate Education Committee, recently committed to working toward funding up-to-date textbooks.
