In this episode of Observer Radio, staff writer Patrick Michels explains how Texas is on the way to creating a public school course in Mexican-American history. Staff writer Melissa del Bosque is with us in the studio to talk about Central Americans fleeing violence in their homeland and seeking asylum in the U.S. And we take a look back at a few very important Observer stories from 2013.

The Texas Observer depends on support from its members to keep telling stories like the one you are reading now. This fall we're looking for 200 more sustaining members—people like you who can give us as little as $0.99 per month. Your membership means we can continue shedding light on issues that might otherwise go unreported. Can we count on you?
