Join concerned parents, educators, businesspeople and other Texans at the “Don’t White-Out Our History” rally at 1 p.m., Wednesday, May 19, in front of the Texas Education Agency. The TEA building is located at 17th and Congress just north of the Capitol in Austin.
The state board will be hearing public testimony on proposed new social studies curriculum standards inside the TEA building that day. Help us send a message: stop playing politics with the education of Texas schoolchildren. Teachers and scholars should be deciding what to teach in our students classrooms, not politicians promoting personal biases and agendas.
We realize it’s a workday. We know it might be difficult to make it to the rally. But the education of nearly 5 million Texas schoolchildren is on the line this week. So take a late lunch. Come join us. Tell lawmakers that it’s time to rein in a state board that is holding Texas and our students back in the race to the future.
