Summer School Is in Session: Join Us for the Launch of Our Statewide Campaign for Respect

All Texas AFT members are invited to attend the official launch of our union’s statewide campaign for respect on Monday, July 25 from 10 a.m.–noon. 

You can join us in person at the Houston Children’s Museum Houston or you can join via Zoom. Use our online registration form to register today! 

We’re calling this event Texas AFT Summer School, and the agenda is jam-packed:

  • We’ll define the issues that are driving 66% of Texas school employees to say they’re thinking of leaving the profession. (Spoiler: It’s got something to do with respect.)
  • We’ll release our newest report in partnership with Battelle for Kids, outlining solutions to these real problems educators identified in focus groups earlier this year. 
  • We’ll highlight the work we’ve done collectively across the state already to win better wages and working conditions in our schools this year — and what we need to do to make real change in the Legislature in 2023. 
  • We’ll sign on to the Respect Pledge together and commit to our shared fight. 

Whether we’ll see you in Houston or on Zoom, we can’t wait to tell Texas and its leaders to #RespectUsOrExpectUs.
