TSTA would like to congratulate President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their resounding win. Across the nation, educators and students are celebrating this victory for public schools and communities, as we look forward to partnering with the Biden-Harris administration as they take office.
Educators know President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris are tireless advocates for public education and the partners students and educators need in the White House. And, we are excited about having a friend and colleague in the White House with Dr. Jill Biden, an educator and longtime NEA member, as First Lady.
Texas educators also know that the upcoming legislative session will be especially challenging, as our state grapples with the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic. TSTA members and staff take our relationships with public education friendly legislators seriously, and we will be at the Capitol advocating in the best interests of our students, schools, and communities throughout the transition and session. Keep an eye out for TSTA’s legislative updates and actions you can take to communicate directly with your representative and senator on important education issues.
Be a TSTA PAC hero! Please also consider joining, or increasing your monthly contribution to, the TSTA PAC. Participation is completely voluntary and the funds we raise help elect pro-public education candidates to the Texas Senate and House. Every member who contributes increases our collective strength at the Capitol.
