Vouchers hurt public schools and students. Join Raise Your Hand Texas and tell legislators a vote for SB4 is a vote against Texas kids.
Download our position paper “School Vouchers: Not Good for Kids, Not Good for Texas” and our policy brief “The Case Against School Vouchers: The Texas Miracle Depends on Strong Public Schools, Not Unproven Gimmicks” (2015). Both can be found at http://www.raiseyourhandtex....
Leaders matter. You are critical to growing teachers and students, caring for the future of Texas, and advancing public education every day. You are the linchpin of innovation in Texas schools. We know how important your job is. We see the work you do. That’s why we invest in you.
February 4-6, we hosted the 7th Annual Raise Your Hand Texas Leadership Symposium. Past attendees have reported this conference as the best professional development they receive all year. In correspondence with the legislative session, we hosted the Symposium in Austin and included advocacy elements to complement the instructional leadership and marketing sessions. We will do this every other year and it will be known as the “Campus to Capitol Conference.” School leaders need to understand how the legislative process works and how to be strong advocates for public schools at the state level.
