Just a reminder:
Save Texas Schools – Fund Public Education Now!
Our Schools, Our Kids, Our Future
Texas students are tough, but they’ve never faced a crisis like this. In every school district across the Lone Star State, the same grim headlines repeat: campus closures, teacher layoffs, drastic cuts to core academic programs.
The culprit is a $27 billion state budget hole, which some say could have been avoided. But casting blame now doesn’t help. The challenge is to keep our schools open for all students.
There is help for Texas students if our leaders have the courage to use it.
Tell your elected officials to:
- Keep Texas smart – make education a top priority!
- Use the $9.3 Billion Texas “Rainy Day” Fund to support schools
- Sign the paperwork for $830 Million in federal aid for teachers
- Fix school funding laws to be fair to all districts and to our growing student population.
These tools can save our schools. Call, write or email today!
