Feedback from Attendees at Past Conferences:
“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 my area!”
“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 to everybody 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.”
