Public Education is Under Attack
Texas public school students are the future of Texas, but more than ever our teachers are overburdened and under-appreciated. Inadequate pay, lack of respect, and stressful work conditions are pushing teachers out of the profession and attracting fewer new teachers into the field. According to a recent survey conducted by the Charles Butt Foundation, 77% of Texas teachers seriously considered leaving the profession in 2022. Recruitment and retention are a challenge in our local districts and across the state. Every Texas student needs a safe and healthy educational environment to meet their full academic potential, but partisanship and political posturing have made some students feel less safe and less welcome at school. It is up to each of us to educate ourselves and vote for leaders who will put students and public education first.
