Statement to the Texas State Board of Education to the recent historic vote to approve TEKS standard

On Friday, April 13, 2018, the Texas State Board of Education (TXSBOE) approved Texas Essential Skills and Knowledge (TEKS) standards for a Mexican American Studies (MAS) course for high school students. This is the first time in Texas and US history that a state board of education approves a MAS course, and the first time in Texas history that an Ethnic Studies course of any kind is approved. In addition, the TXSBOE voted to open the process to create other Ethnic Studies courses. We commend the TXSBOE for finally approving this MAS course and opening up the process to create other Ethnic Studies courses. The TXSBOE vote to approve this MAS course should have been an historic victory for th

Foster Children Need Your Help this Summer

Lubbock, Texas –The end of the school year and the start of summer vacation is just around the corner. This doesn’t mean that the problem of child abuse and neglect takes the summer off. Last year, almost 1,600 children entered into the foster care system in the areas served by CASA of the South Plains. CASA Volunteers are still desperately needed to serve as Advocates for children caught up in the whirlwind of change they face during their time in foster care.
