Happy 4th
Happy Fourth!

Summer is finally here! Have a fun, safe and restful holiday as we celebrate our nation’s independence! TSTA offices will be closed on Monday.

Uvalde in our hearts
Uvalde in our hearts

Our prayers are with the victims and families of Uvalde. Their pain will not be forgotten. We rededicate ourselves to advocating for the change that ensures our schools become safe and welcoming places where every student can thrive.

WEP_GPO must go
WEP-GPO must go!

Many educators have their Social Security benefits reduced—or lose them entirely—due to the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) and Government Pension Offset (GPO). Help us ensure that educators get the Social Security benefits they’ve earned. Ask Congress to fully repeal both the GPO and WEP.

Honesty in Education
Honesty in Education

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.

Racial and social justice
Black Lives Matter at School

The Texas State Teachers Association believes that the path to racial and social justice lies with education. We have compiled resources you can use that amplify and celebrate racial and social equity in our schools, meaningful allyship, and restorative justice.
