Take Action!

Texans have high expectations for student achievement and public school performance. With additional resources, we can give all 5.3 million Texas students a fair shot at success in school and life.

Public School Funding

Texas enrolls more than 5.3 million public school students in more than 1,200 districts and charters across 268,000 square miles. The school finance system is broken and no longer meets the state’s growing demands. Additional investment is needed now so our public schools have the resources to prepare all students for college and career opportunities.


Raise Your Hand Texas believes all children, regardless of family background, deserve a fair shot at success in school and in life. Full-day, high-quality pre-kindergarten gives them that opportunity.

Public School Choice v. Vouchers

From dual language and STEM to internships and early college programs, public school districts across Texas are offering families innovative choices to personalize education and engage students, leading to higher achievement and postsecondary success.

Private school vouchers are a failed experiment in educational autonomy. Despite a long history, research shows school vouchers don’t deliver consistently improved outcomes or educational innovation at scale. They lack transparency in the use of taxpayer dollars and public accountability for educational outcomes.
