We want our kids to have an education that imparts honesty about who we are, integrity in how we treat others and courage to do what’s right to build a better nation. Our goal is to ensure our public schools have empowered educators and a curriculum that helps students understand the past and prepare for the future.
As our students head back to class and Texas reels from a rapidly spreading variant, TSTA continues to urge school districts to take steps to ensure the health and safety of students and educators.
Thank you for staying informed and alert during the special sessions.
