TSTA has fought for safe school re-openings and we are fighting for equity, to correct the unfair distribution of resources and opportunities in our communities. Join us and help make us even stronger.

TSTA members stopped the swap and our voices have been heard loud and clear! Texas school districts may now apply to receive their share of $11.2B appropriated for public ed under the American Rescue Plan or ESSER III Fund. This is a huge victory for TSTA and while we celebrate this win, we know that the fight continues! Let’s keep the pressure up to ensure ALL the federal stimulus funds go to our Texas students!
