Support Pro-Science, Anti-Creationist School Board Members

For those who don't know, Texas is very important in determining what is found in U.S. textbooks due to its large purchasing power. While keeping anti-science wackaloons off of school boards is a good thing anywhere, it goes double in Texas. Sheril Kirshenbaum explains:

There are two, local races, where every penny goes to work, that have big implications for science education all over the country. The outcome of either contest could tip the balance away from anti-science extremists who seized control of the schoolboard to professional educators with the students' best interests in mind. Please help if you can.

You can make a single stop contribution to Judy Jennings and Rebecca Bell-Metereau here.

It's a local race, so even small donations will help a lot. Please donate.
