Of utmost importance is to make sure that Barbara Cargill is confirmed by the Senate Nominations Committee to continue as the Chair of the Texas State Board of Education She is scheduled to go before the Senate Nominations Committee this coming Monday, Feb. 11, at 10:30 A. M. If she gets the committee’s nod, then she will go before the full Senate for confirmation probably on Wednesday, Feb. 13.
The whole country has been watching to see how Texas will deal with CSCOPE; and in large part the uncovering of this very questionable curriculum started when Barbara Cargill was accessible to the grassroots citizens. Because she took the concerns seriously and personally went through each complaint to verify it for herself, she soon realized there were definite problems. She allowed the SBOE to have an informal hearing on CSCOPE and conducted the discussion with fairness to all sides. She then worked effectively with Sen. Dan Patrick and CSCOPE/TESCCC to come up with the plan of action as described in the following John Griffing’s article.

Barbara Cargill has given excellent leadership throughout her entire time as chair of the SBOE. Her calm demeanor and kind ways have endeared her to people on all sides of the aisle. They know that she will give everyone a fair chance to be heard on the Board. This is exactly the type of Chair that the SBOE needs so that they can accomplish their goals of guiding the public schools of Texas, including their new responsibilities to scrutinize CSCOPE.
