While not a member of the Tea Party, I like some of its conservative values. I am a conservative, but I am also a moderate, depending on the subject. I think it is important to focus as much on local…Continue
[We as Texans should be very grateful to Barbara Cargill who has decided to run for re-election to the Texas State Board of Education. She is one of the six conservatives presently on the SBOE who is leading our state into true education reform. As chairman of the SBOE, she has already demonstrated “grace under fire” and has continued the good work done by Gail Lowe, the past SBOE chair. Barbara is calm, organized, fair, kind, and knowledgeable. Please consider sending Barbara a campaign donation to make sure she is able to continue her service to the 4.7 million Texas children who are depending upon her. – Donna Garner]
12.8.11 BARBARA CARGILL, CHAIR OF TEXAS STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION FILES FOR RE-ELECTION
Dear Friends and Supporters,
It is with great enthusiasm that I tell you that I have filed for re-election to the State Board of Education! My family is very supportive; after prayer and discussion, we all agreed this was the right thing to do. Also, after talking with many of you in my twenty-four counties, I feel your support and encouragement to continue my role in impacting the education of our precious schoolchildren. I cannot tell you how much that means to me.
As your State Board of Education member, these are a few highlights of my 7 years of service:
*Appointed by Governor Perry to serve as Chair of the Board in July 2011
*Elected twice by fellow Board members to serve as Chair of the Committee on Instruction
*Worked tirelessly to develop state curriculum standards that are concise, measurable and rigorous
Here are examples of what I have supported and voted for:
Standards that emphasize grammar, phonics, handwriting, spelling, and composition skills as well as a focus on serious literature in English classes;
A curriculum that teaches the fundamental skills of mathematics such as memorizing the multiplication/division tables and discouraging the use of calculators in elementary school;
History curriculum standards that emphasize patriotism, the free enterprise system, our Founding Fathers, founding documents like the U.S. Constitution, and American exceptionalism;
Health textbooks that uphold traditional definitions of marriage and family and abstinence-based sex education;
Science textbooks that encourage students to think, ask, and predict, have increased lab time, and that present evolution as a theory, not as fact;
*Voted for textbooks which provide teachers and students with error-free, academically sound instructional materials;
*Served on the Governor-appointed Commission for College Ready Texas to improve students’ college readiness.
It is my passion to continue the pursuit of excellence in public education in Texas. I have been a strong conservative voice for children, parents, and teachers and have sent clear conservative messages through my careful votes. These have proved my dedication to our school children.
Under the leadership of myself and Commissioner of Education Robert Scott, the Board is set to focus on much-needed improvements such as college and workplace readiness, quality classroom instruction supported by the best instructional materials, and academic success for every child. It would be a privilege for me to continue to represent District 8 in this position!

As your State Board of Education member, I will continue my work for children by keeping the lines of communication open between the State Board and the Legislature to ensure that students’ best interests are served.
I will continue to work to improve academic rigor in our schools, to support the authority of teachers in the classroom, and to communicate with my 1.6 million constituents through public appearances and through my bi-monthly e-mail newsletter, The Cargill Connection. I want you to be informed and to provide feedback about education issues — what you think matters to me!
Thank you, and have a blessed and joyful Christmas with family and friends.
Barbara Cargill, State Board of Education, District 8
Please forward this e-mail to parents, teachers, administrators, and others who have an interest in education.

“The legislature finds that it shall be the public policy of this state to protect it’s citizens from the application of foreign laws when the application of a foreign law will result in the violation of a right guaranteed by the constitution of this state or of the United States…..”
If the congress passes the Obama compromise tax bill, Dream Act, and or the Omnibus Spending bill then we need to start another political party of our own that truly represents us. Let's start calling it just "Tea or Texas Party Comittee or Community",TPC, and use a Lion as the party animal, symbol of power. There's more of us than there are of them, so let the games begin.
