AUSTIN, Texas (BP)--Christmas and Rosh Hashanah will remain in Texas social studies textbooks, members of the Texas State Board of Education said on Sept. 17 during a review of proposed new standards.

The 15-member elected board, which approves curriculum and textbook standards for the state's public schools and holds national sway because Texas is the second-largest textbook purchaser behind California, held its first public hearing on proposed changes offered by 124 educators and a six-member review panel appointed by board members.
