A big endorsement in the State Board of Education District 5 race today — Henry Cisneros endorsed Rebecca Bell-Metereau. From the Houston Chronicle:

“Rebecca Bell-Metereau is the kind of person Texas families need at the State Board of Education. She'll stand up for our neighborhood schools, our children and our future,” Cisneros said.

“She knows that the State Board of Education should focus on our children and schools, not a right-wing agenda. That's why I'm supporting her–Rebecca will stand up for Texas kids,” he said.

Former Mayor Henry Cisneros Bell-Metereau, an English professor at Texas State University, is making the board's political fighting over ideology a key part of her campaign. The State Board of Education is made up of 15 members. District 5 covers northern Bexar County and southern Travis County and 11 other central Texas Counties.
