Petitioning Texas State House

To vote NO to HB 2543

Teachers are worth more than $27,540 a year.  The STAAR test is not a measure of a good Teacher.  The growth, and indexes of testing accountability are also not comparing apples to apples in every classroom.  Unfortunately, even after many letters, phone calls, and Social media campaigns the Senate Education Committee passed SB 893.  This Bill will allow School Districts to use standardized test scores as a major evaluation tool.

Teachers are some of the hardest working, caring individuals in the world.  They pay for their jobs!  They buy the supplies for the classroom and their students.  They work before 8 a.m. and hours after 4 p.m.  The Texas State Senate has embarrassingly DISRESPECTED EVERY TEACHER in the STATE of TEXAS by voting to reduce salaries without steps!  They have also disregarded the lack of Teacher retention in the State.

It is now up to the House of Representatives that WE THE PEOPLE have voted and put into office to hear our voices and vote in favor of TEACHERS!!!  Please sign the petition!
