Flores: Now Is the Time to Speak to Lawmakers

It’s time for school leaders to seize the day and start meeting with Texas legislators in advance of the 86th Legislative Session, which begins in Austin in January.

TASB Board President Teresa Flores wrote a column for Texas Lone Star magazine’s August issue urging educators to use the time between now and what’s likely to be a busy session to sit down with legislators. The consensus is that school funding will get some attention, so legislators need to hear from you on “…the good, the bad, and the ugly of your school budget.”

Legislators would also benefit from seeing school facilities—including those in need of repairs—and getting a firsthand look at the excellent work being done by public schools daily.
