What is the most crucial leg of a stool? The one that is missing.
A strong Texas recovery starts with the recovery of our public schools. Right now, Texas has only secured two funding legs out of three desperately needed by our teachers and students. Billions of federal stimulus dollars intended to provide pandemic relief to our state’s public schools have not yet been committed to our schools.
Texas schools need a strong and solid foundation supported by all three legs — a foundation that must hold both our recovery, and our future. Because when our schools recover, our students recover. Our families recover. Our communities recover. Texas recovers.
Our students get it. Now legislators must act on it.
