CCSS or TEKS? Does it matter?  
A recent article in Breitbart reported that some students in some districts have brought home materials with the CCSS label attached: http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-Texas/2014/09/4/Texas-Parents-Stunned-by-Common-Core-Materials-Coming-Home-From-School. Since Texas districts may select textbooks from an approved list, it is possible that some companies have CCSS materials as well as TEKS materials. What happens when CCSS materials end up going home instead of the ones that are TEKS aligned? Apparently, some folks are taking issue with just that.

I think this is an interesting discussion. I wonder if parents would object if they knew the ELAR TEKS were written with about as much expert input as those for CCSS?
