Measure What Matters Council

Measure What Matters

Beginning in October of 2021, Raise Your Hand Texas began meeting with education stakeholders across Texas in small and large group settings to educate stakeholders about our current accountability system, gather feedback on accountability topics, and invite people to join us in the push for legislative change. By fall of 2022, we will have heard more than 10,000 voices, listening to what Texans want most from their schools.

To further guide our advocacy efforts, in December 2021 we invited a group of education leaders, superintendents, teachers, school board trustees and education advocates to join the Raise Your Hand Texas Measure What Matters Council on Assessment and Accountability. Our goal is that their work and recommendations will culminate in legislative change during the 2023 Legislative Session.

Texas is a long-standing leader in school accountability reform and is uniquely positioned to lead the way toward a more useful, fair, and holistic approach.

We have the opportunity to raise our standards for success and raise student outcomes like never before. Join us as we chart a course toward the future for our 5.4 million public school students.
