Protect Texas Public School Funding
The 86th Texas Legislature was largely a success, with House Bill 3 (HB 3) adding $6.5 billion to public schools over two years. However, the recession created by COVID-19 could mean budget cuts during the next legislative session that wipe out the gains made under HB 3. To ensure the strength of Texas public schools, we must act now to protect this vital funding.
Here are five ways you can take action as a public education advocate:

- Register to vote, vote in every election, and encourage your friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues to vote.
- Share the good news! Great things are happening every single day in Texas public schools; be sure to share them on social media. Share the Texans for Strong Public Schools website so that others can stay informed and become advocates.
