Association of Texas Professional Educators

At Teach the Vote, a project of the Association of Texas Professional Educators, Texas voters can research the education stances of candidates for the State Board of Education and the Texas Legislature. You won't find endorsements, but you will find solid information from Texas' preeminent educators' association. Use this information to select the candidates you believe will make public education their top priority.
