Money Intended for Education Should Stay in Education

Stimulus Message for Texas Recovery

The federal government is providing billions in COVID-19 relief funding to public schools across the country. Texas initially received $1.3 billion in federal stimulus funding intended for our schools in the spring of 2020. However, our schools did not see any additional money because Texas instead diverted these funds to fill other state budget holes.

Now, another $5.5 billion in federal funds promised to our schools hangs in the balance. The state should not use federal stimulus dollars that were meant for education to fill other holes in the state budget. 

Please help spread the word and ensure these funds go to public education with our social media graphics.
