Last year, 13,000 parents, school employees, and concerned citizens stood strong at the Save Texas Schools rally at the State Capitol to fight budget cuts to education. “Why we are going back when the legislature is not in session?” Because NOW IS EVEN MORE IMPORTANT!
It is likely that 130 of 150 house seats will be determined in upcoming primary elections at the end of May. We need to send a message NOW to all candidates and elected officials-including legislators, State Board of Education, and local school boards – that if they want our vote, they need to demonstrate support for public education. We cannot afford to have public officials who believe their only mandate is to cut, cut, cut.
