TX PTA: School Finance Reform Updates
THIS IS A MESSAGE FROM THE TEXAS PTA
Last week Senate leaders added language to HB 21, Representative Dan Huberty’s school finance bill, that would create a far-reaching Education Savings Account (voucher) program to fund private schools.
The ESA will not effectively support the intended students because many of them live in an area that has no access to private, specialized schools. In addition, creating a voucher program for one set of students diminishes the state’s ability to fully and adequately fund our public schools.
Contact your legislators and urge them to remove this language from the bill. Support ALL Texas public school students and reform our public school finance system without ESA/Vouchers.
