Join now and pay no dues until Fall

TSTA has fought for safe school re-openings and we are fighting for equity, to correct the unfair distribution of resources and opportunities in our communities. Join us and help make us even stronger.

TSTA members stopped the swap and our voices have been heard loud and clear! Texas school districts may now apply to receive their share of $11.2B appropriated for public ed under the American Rescue Plan or ESSER III Fund. This is a huge victory for TSTA and while we celebrate this win, we know that the fight continues! Let’s keep the pressure up to ensure ALL the federal stimulus funds go to our Texas students!

87th Texas Legislature

Thank you for staying informed and alert this session. Stay tuned for more information about the special session starting July 8.

Racial and social justice

The Texas State Teachers Association believes that the path to racial and social justice lies with education. We have compiled resources you can use that amplify and celebrate racial and social equity in our schools, meaningful allyship, and restorative justice. Also, join us for NEA's Season of Justice with events all summer long.
