ATPE encourages members and public education supporters to attend the Save Texas Schools rally at the State Capitol on Saturday, April 18, from 10 a.m to noon. Save Texas Schools is a nonpartisan coalition of parents, students, educators, business leaders, community groups, and faith organizations advocating on behalf of public education. The coalition’s goals include urging the legislature to prioritize funding for public schools, limit standardized testing, and oppose privatization. Its partner organizations include all four of the state’s major teacher groups, PTA, TAMSA, and many more. Tomorrow’s rally will feature guest speakers, student performances, and appearances by legislators.
