As part of Texas PTA's Rally Day 2019, a group of Travis parents drove to Austin to advocate for improvements in public school financing and ask for funding for mental health and special education. In only 2.5 hours, the group spoke with seven Senators’ and Representatives' offices, all from Houston. While only one Representative from Houston, Rep. Dutton, is on the Education Committee, concerned parents are encouraged to call, email, and visit all of our Senators/Reps and those on the Education Committee. If you don't know your senator/rep, please use THIS LINK.
An omnibus education bill is slated to be announced soon, which has the potential of being a top focus this legislative session. We can't afford for it not to be.
