Republicans Still In Charge Of Texas State Board Of Education


Democrats won another seat on the State Board of Education, but Republicans still hold nine of the board’s 15 seats.

The race was so close, neither candidate got 50-percent.

In another close race, GOP incumbent Tom Maynard beat Marsha Burnett-Webster in District 10, which covers Williamson and Bastrop counties as well as part of Travis County. The board approves the curriculum for public school students statewide.
