The current heavy-weight is “Raise Your Hand Texas”, and it opposes all School Choice legislation.
The up-and-comer is “Texans for Education Reform”, which supports limited School Choice legislation and opposes “Raise Your Hand Texas”. TER currently supports expansion of student access to online courses paid for by the state, removing the cap on the number of charter schools in the state, and enacting a strong “parent trigger” law. Follow this link for an explanation of the “parent trigger”. I hope that after TER succeeds with these limited goals, it will move on to more the aggressive goals, tuition scholarships and tuition tax-credits.
We need to support TER. Like their Facebook page! It wants to defeat “Raise Your Hand Texas”, school choice’s big bully.
