Texas teachers are suffering due to a lack of enforcement and protection by district administrations, law enforcement, and administrative agencies that have left many teachers without a voice. Some teachers in this state have been dehumanized and oppressed; they have been stripped of their rights, their voices, and their basic utilities of instruction. It is time that educators be given back the power in their classrooms and be given the rights to speak, stand up, and most importantly educate. They are trained and degreed profressionals who have important input into the education system which is often wrongfully portrayed as dysfunctional. Their voices must be heard and taken into account.
