Respect Us or Expect Us

Texas public school employees deserve elected leaders who respect the difficult, crucial work they do every day. This year, you have the chance to choose your bosses on the school board and your representatives at the Texas Capitol.

The last day to register to vote in the March 1 primary elections is Jan. 31. Check your voter registration now so you can make sure your voice is heard at the ballot box.

We Educate. We Advocate. We Vote. Public education is on the ballot in every election. And in this election year, we must elect candidates who will fight for the rights and needs of the people who have worked to keep our schools running through these difficult times.
