Many in the library community have been following the discussions at the State
Board of Education concerning proposed changes to the Texas Essential
Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) standards for the state’s social studies

about the proposed standards.
These proposed standards are now posted on the Texas Register and are under a
30-day public comment period. To see a detailed mark-up and for a link to make
