Analysis of the Proposed Instructional Materials

The Texas State Board of Education agenda at the November 16-19, 2021 meetings will include the decision to approve instructional materials for Health education based on the November 2020 approved Health TEKS.  Texas schools will be required to provide instruction on the new TEKS starting School Year 2022-2023.  Approved instructional materials will have an advantage in the Texas and national market over every other proposed material.

Texas parents and grandparents have reviewed the proposed materials and contributed to analysis of each of the proposed materials including 15 Harmful Elements of Comprehensive Sex Education rubrics for each publication.
