Alert to Ed Reformers Living Near Austin! Come to the AISD School Board Meeting!

December 17, 2011

This Monday (12/19) at 7 pm.  Come to the AISD School Board meeting.

Come support IDEA Public School, an exemplary charter school, in their bid to operate the perpetually failing Eastside Memorial High School.

Get there early (5pm) to get a seat in the hearing room at 1111 West 6th Street, 2 blocks west of Lamar.

There will be plenty of teacher’s union folks.

We need to show the school board that there are folks on the other side of the issue.

Join the National Education Reform Movement!

January 6, 2011

Michelle Rhee, former Chancellor of Washington DC Public Schools, has started a national education reform grassroots movement called StudentsFirst.org.

Please join her organization as well as the Texas subgroup called “Texas for Education Reform.”  That way we can stay in touch with what the group is doing in Texas and on the national level.

Also while you are at it, please “like” my FaceBook “fan page” named “Texans for Parental Choice in Education.”

Thank you in advance.  I’m so excited about the education reform policies that could become law during the Texas legislative session this spring!
