Today we are thanking the Black educators who participated in our Texas Teacher Advocacy Days during the 88th Legislative Session in honor of Black History Month. These educators drove in from across Texas to let their voices be heard in the Capitol and continue to stand up for public education. 

Thank you to these educators who are doing more than raising their hands for the future of Texas; they are creating tomorrow's history:

Watch our latest video to see what schools spend their money on and how tight budgets are becoming at bit.ly/theschooldollar .
