From Texas Standard:

Autonomous cars are coming. Not everyone is ready to hand over driving duties to a computer, but some Texans have had the chance to experience a driverless vehicle in relatively safe confines. If you’re going to South by Southwest in Austin next week, you may get your chance to see the driverless shuttle bus.

The Texas State Board of Education preliminarily voted 14-0 today to reject a Mexican-American history textbook that scholars have said was riddled with inaccuracies. A final vote on the textbook is due Friday.

UPDATE: The Texas Education Agency says Commissioner Mike Morath is allowing school districts to decide whether students affected this week by glitches with the online STAAR test must retake the exam.  In many cases student answers disappeared from computer screens or were not recorded when students signed off.
