Conservatives on Texas board leaving legacy in schools but losing clout

When social conservatives on the State Board of Education put the final touches on social studies curriculum standards this week, it will be a significant victory in their years-long push to imprint their beliefs upon what Texas students learn.
 
But it could also be the peak of their influence. After losses in this spring's primaries, the social conservative bloc is expected to lack the clout to drive the board's decisions on the curriculum, textbooks and other key education issues.
