How we can pass School Choice in Texas.
The education establishment in Texas is dead set against letting school choice become the law. The biggest player in the game, the Texas State Teachers Association (TSTA) will spend their last dollar to stop school choice. Why? Because the TSTA will lose most of the power that they hold right now.
The TSTA is a powerful political force. Their weapons are,
- Serious money that they collect from most public school teachers.
- A built-in grassroots network, which is all public school employees located in every city and county in Texas.
The only way to go up against this political juggernaut is to match their strengths. At a minimum parents and businessmen must politically organize so that we can match the TSTA’s money and voices.
Impossible you say? What is the alternative? The alternative is to sit by and watch the next generation become more illiterate, more incarcerated, and less able to be a productive member of society. Let’s organize ourselves and say in a unified voice to our legislators, “Give us Parental Choice in Education!”
Texans for Parental Choice in Education is a new organization whose goal is to politically organize parents and businessmen to speak with one voice about school choice.
