Aycock: It’s Important for Public Ed Advocates to Engage

A new TASB Talks podcast features Jimmie Don Aycock, former state legislator, emphasizing the importance of supporting public education. Aycock wrote an op-ed that appeared on TribTalk in 2018 on the state’s school finance woes and the need for the state to increase its funding of public education.

Regarding the ongoing discussions of school finance at the Texas Legislature, Aycock said, “I think it’s important for people to be aware that they’ve got to advocate for what they believe in…it’s important that the public get involved that discussion. Too many people right now are kind of checked out of the whole political process…and that’s really troubling. I think that’s the most dangerous situation of all.”
