Texans for Public Education
Advocating on behalf of Texas Public Schools, Schoolchildren, and Teachers
We are Texans for Public Education. We are concerned citizens that actively participate in the promotion of public education through block voting. Here you will find information about which politicians we believe have the best policies and intentions for supporting public education, its educators, and students.
I want to take just a moment and talk about the vision and purpose of T4PE. I am not only a teacher, but also a military veteran, a gun-owner, pro-life, and you know what? Absolutely none of that is pertinent here. Teachers and students have been getting screwed by the state my entire career, to the point that the legislature has turned schools and our children into a financial milk cow and a political pawn for their own purposes. This group is about finally fighting back.
There are 1.2 million members of TRS in this state. If we could get even 10% of that number to vote as a block, we can get the legislature's undivided attention. This site and our Facebook Group is where we can discuss issues and candidates and take action as one, including our voting.
There may be times when the group is divided on a candidate or an issue, but if the overwhelming majority of the group agrees to vote a certain way, I will vow to put my differences aside and maintain solidarity with the group in order to ensure enough political leverage to accomplish our goal, which is better education for our children and better work environment for our teachers. I will leave my political affiliation at the door, and until this state has regained its sanity in regards to public education, education will be the issue which drives my vote. Will you do the same?
