Pol. adv. Rebecca Bell-Metereau, candidate for State Board of Education, PO Box 425, San Marcos, TX 78667, Teresa Hobby, Treasurer. (512) 787-1761
Let's elect an educator to our
Texas state board of education
The Texas State Board of Education is charged with providing leadership for our public schools. Instead, a faction has turned its meetings into a battleground in the “culture wars.”
Dr. Rebecca Bell-Metereau, an award-winning professor of English at Texas State University, will bring change to the board.
Rebecca and her husband, Pierre Metereau, have two grown daughters who graduated from San Marcos public schools. She has been an active volunteer in San Marcos ISD, in her neighborhood association, and with the City of San Marcos.
Rebecca teaches courses in literature and film and has taught at Texas State (formerly Southwest Texas) for more than 30 years. She is the recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship that allowed her to teach at the university level in Africa for one year.
Rebecca is a Democrat challenging Republican incumbent Ken Mercer, who represents District 5 on the board. Mercer is one of its most extreme members.
District 5 includes 11 central Texas counties and portions of Travis and Bexar.
