Texas Focus: (CRITICAL!!!) Texas Board of Education
This comes from a Daily Kos diary:
VOTE FOR CHANGE IN NOVEMBER - State Board of Education District 10 and District 5
There is a way to change the direction of the Texas State Board of Education - and the states across the nation which are influenced by this board.
The best way to change this direction is to support and elect the Democratic challengers in these races.
District 10 - Dr. Judy Jennings. Judy Jennings is an expert in education policy and assessment, has worked at the Texas Education Agency, and is committed to educating Texas students for the 21st Century. Judy needs your support to win against Marsha Haney or Brian Russell.

District 5 - Dr. Rebecca Bell-Metereau is an award-winning educator at Texas State University. She has always served her community, both locally and globally. She taught English and American studies in the Peace Corps and served as a French interpreter for U.S. Air Force relief flights in Chad, one of the ten poorest countries in the world. She was a Fulbright scholar and teacher in Senegal.

Now get out there and vote in November!
[NOTE: I have donated to both. These are among the most important races this year, though most people will ignore them]
