Happy Thanksgiving!

From all of us at TSTA, we wish you and your family a joyous and restful Thanksgiving holiday!

Native American and Alaska Native Heritage Month

In November we encourage all people to learn about and honor the contributions and cultures of the Indigenous peoples of the North American continent.

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.

Back to school

As we go back to school with a more dangerous variant of the coronavirus, we urge school districts to ignore Gov. Abbott’s politically motivated order prohibiting mask mandates. We believe it is within a school district’s discretion to take steps to ensure the health and safety of its students and employees.

87th Texas Legislature

Thank you for staying informed and alert during the special sessions.

Racial and social justice

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. Also, join us for NEA's Season of Justice with events all summer long.
