Oh, how I love my state! This reminds me of the 90's. The conservative school board bought out the superintendent's contract, because he disallowed pregame prayer. It was the Round Rock, TX district and was big news then. Parents were caught by surprise.

What hurts the whole country is, textbook publishers cater to TX. school districts for textbook content - we have been over this before on another team, another year.

Round Rock grew so much since the problem in the 90's. The conservatives no longer control everything in that school district.

It doesn't go away.

I'm waiting to hear details on a planned counter-event in Austin, to Perry's day of prayer in Houston.

(Round Rock school district covers the part of Austin where we lived then. My part of the district was in liberal Austin, and that superintendent was very popular in the district, but he was gone in one day. Apathetic voters had let extreme conservatives hold on to all the school board seats, having no idea who they were. It changed from that day on.

Please excuse this long regurgitation - the article brought it all back!)
