The Status of the Curriculum in the Public Schools: A Report from the State Board of Education. Submitted to the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Speaker, and the Seventy-Third Texas Legislature 1990-1992.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
In 1981, the Texas Legislature established a systematic structure for the development and implementation of a state curriculum for Texas public schools. This biennial report outlines the state's responses to curriculum-related legislation issues from fall 1990 to fall 1992. The introduction offers a historical review of state legislation that begins with House Bill 246 of the 67th Legislature and includes bills passed by the 72nd Legislature. The second section discusses activities related to the various components of the state curriculum during the years 1991 and 1992. Modifications in the required essential elements of instruction are explained as well as other changes to the State Board of Education rules. Also addressed are changes in the textbook-adoption process and the state's student assessment program. The concluding section makes the point that curriculum success depends on providing inservice teacher training and adequate textbook funding. A civil rights compliance statement is included. (LMI)
