Raise Your Hand Texas works in local communities and at the Texas Legislature to broaden and strengthen support for public schools. We are committed to reinventing public education for the 21st century and investing in the more than 5 million public school students who will become the future of Texas.

We support public policy solutions that invest in our students, encourage innovation and autonomy, and improve college and workforce readiness.

Raise Your Hand Texas’ core policy priorities are wide-ranging, but always grounded in improving student outcomes.

From vouchers to high-quality virtual education, improved accountability to equitable charter policies, and teacher attrition and retention to public school funding, the success of Texas’ public school students is at the heart of all we do. After all, the future is in Texas public schools.

Our past, present, and future work reflects our belief that all students deserve a level playing field and equal access to a high-quality public education.
