Rally at the State Capitol to Save Texas Schools
Save Texas Schools, a grassroots nonpartisan coalition of parents, teachers, students and community members, is holding a march and rally at the State Capitol this Saturday, March 24th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Since last year, state funding for Texas schools has been cut by $5.4 billion, in spite of rising enrollments. Class sizes are bigger and programs like pre-k and dropout prevention have been cut. Another round of cuts is expected next year.
The Save Texas Schools March and Rally is meant to show public support for funding quality education for all children. Learn more and sign a petition at www.savetxschools.org.
