“Ruben Cortez has worked hard on the State Board of Education for educators, students and public schools. He has earned election to the Texas Senate, where he will oppose private school vouchers and work to limit the expansion of corporate charter chains. He will fight for higher educator pay and against Dan Patrick’s campaign to siphon tax dollars from underfunded public schools.” — Noel Candelaria, president, Texas State Teachers Association
Help TSTA elect Ruben Cortez. He will:
# Fight to increase educator pay every year, not just once a decade.
# Fight against private school vouchers and for more funding for public schools.
# Work to reduce high-stakes testing.
# Ensure the Rio Grande Valley has a voice in education policymaking.
During his time on the State Board of Education, Ruben helped create Texas’ first statewide course on Mexican American studies.
