Winds of change at Texas education board — in 2011


George Clayton pulled a dramatic upset in the March primary elections, for one of Dallas’s two seats on the Texas State Board of Education.  He defeated incumbent, long-time conservative-but-not-always-crazily-so Geraldine Miller.

With no Democratic opposition in November, he just has to wait until January to take his seat.

He’s promising change in the sharp political divisiveness that has marked board actions over the past decade, according to the Texas Tribune.

Unfortunately, the surgery-without-anesthetic on the state’s social studies standards is still scheduled for May 2010.
