Join thousands of fellow Texans at the Texas State Capitol in Austin on Saturday, March 25, 2017 for the Save Texas Schools Statewide Rally! From 10 am to noon, we'll gather in one strong voice to support public education. Great speakers, including state leaders, parents, teachers, students, and more. Legislators will be present to hear that it is time to stop underfunding and over-testing our schools and children!
Save Texas Schools is calling on our state to:
--Increase funding for all Texas public schools this session using the basic allotment. The state needs to pay its fair share, not balance school budgets on the backs of local property taxpayers.
-Revise school finance laws to provide fair and sufficient funding for all Texas students.
-Say no to vouchers or similar schemes that would divert scarce public dollars to unaccountable private schools and programs.
-Reduce the amount of time Texas students spend on high-stakes standardized testing. Tests should diagnose, not punish.
-Reject the flawed A-F rating system for grading public schools.
Use positive, community-based solutions to support and improve struggling schools and students.
-Make sure that schools are safe spaces for ALL students, no matter their situation or background.
