Texas is in line to receive over $19 billion in federal dollars intended for our public schools. Schools desperately need these dollars to help students, staff, and families recover from the pandemic. This money is essential to preventing the public health crisis from becoming a generational education crisis.

Tell state lawmakers to make sure that federal dollars intended for public schools go to public schools.
