TASB Talks Podcast Details Challenges of 2017

A new TASB Talks podcast featuring Executive Director Jim Crow focuses on the response to Hurricane Harvey and the ups and downs of the legislative session.

The devastation of Hurricane Harvey and the failure of the Texas Legislature to address the state’s broken school finance system were the year’s lowest points.

Among the year’s high notes were the response of Texas school districts to their neighbors affected by Hurricane Harvey and TASB’s grassroots letter-writing campaign that resulted in more than 50,000 advocacy letters being sent to Texas legislators. While we wait for the results of 2018 elections, Crow explains what public education advocates can do to keep the momentum going.
