The Texas Senate has approved giving the Board of Education broader veto power over textbooks used across America's second-largest state.
A bill passed Friday lets the board's 15 elected members reject textbook content deemed not "suitable for the subject and grade level."
That language was attached to a previously-approved House bill mandating only that instructional materials include "American principles." It now heads back to the House, which can pass it or call a conference committee to reconcile the differences.
