Feedback from Our Attendees:
“This was a wonderful event. I learned a lot of the smoke and mirrors used by legislators to convince us the budget cuts were not that bad. Really appreciate the representatives who took time to come and talk to us. Let’s organize an event for North Texas!”
“I learned so much… thank you all for taking the time to organize an informative, positive, and proactive conference that supports the public education learning communities in our great state!”
“I’ve gotta say, the conference was informative and very well done. I enjoyed myself and met many others of like mind. Hopefully all who attended will be able to bring back to their communities information and techniques to protect public education. Thanks Allen and the others who facilitated, great job. Our cause is just and our will must be strong for the children.”
“There is so much dedication and hard work in the Save Texas Schools’ crowd. Really impressive. Gives me a sense that we can do this for our kids. Thanks to everyone who put such effort into bringing this for the community.”
Now that the legislative session is over, it’s all about the next election. Come learn how to get involved electing pro-education candidates!
During the 2011 legislative session, public schools suffered devastating cuts for the first time since World War II. Without a new set of legislators, 2013 will bring even more!
The Save Texas Schools Statewide Conference will equip you to become part of the primary and election process in your area. We are nonpartisan, but want to support pro-education candidates and will hold our current legislators accountable for their voting record.
Friday speakers will include Sen. Wendy Davis, Rep. Mike Villarreal and other pro-education legislators, as well as statewide education leaders, parents, teachers and students. Saturday will be a training day, with breakout regional strategy sessions. Topics available shortly!
