The future of Texas – our economy, communities, and citizenry – depends on how well we prepare our students today. All students deserve a level playing field and equal access to a quality public education.
We are reinventing public education for the future – because the future of Texas is in our public schools.
Public schools are at the center of our democracy. They are where we learn about how our government works, and the meaning of civic duty and responsibility are taught. Now that early voting has begun in Texas, there is no better way for Texans to show their support for democracy than by voting for candidates who support Texas public schools.
The Charles Butt Scholarship for Aspiring Teachers is designed to support the best and brightest students pursuing a future in the teaching profession. The scholarship consists of $8,000-$10,000 in annual funding, as well as professional development opportunities and mentorship from sitting public school educators. The scholarship is open to students who are working toward receiving their teaching certification for the first time at selected universities.
The Charles Butt Scholarship application opens on October 1, 2020. More information, eligible universities and programs, and application close dates can be found on CharlesButtScholarship.org.
Public education has never been more important to our local communities and state. Texas’ future success depends on how well we educate students today. It is crucial to elect leaders in 2020 who support investing in the 5 million+ public school students who will become the future of Texas.
