Texas AFT President Zeph Capo commented today on Rep. Harold Dutton, Jr. reviving a discriminatory bill as payback for peers halting his bill to enable state takeovers of school districts.

When you come after children you cross the line. Chairman Dutton’s bullying of educators, Texas children, and his fellow legislators needs to stop today. Shame on him for using trans children as a political balm to salve his wounded pride. From voting for more guns to more high-stakes tests to more state takeovers to more discrimination, Harold Dutton has been wrong on issue after issue, session after session.
