"Education is the key to opportunity in our society, and the equality of educational opportunity must be the birthright for all."

- President LBJ

 

Education is the cornerstone of civilization. We, therefore, demand the following:

  • Debt-free public education from Pre-K to technical schools to Doctorate (from school lunches to textbooks to tuition)
  • Minimum salaries of $75,000 for teachers
  • Minimum wage of $17.76/hr for all non-salaried workers
  • Allow Texas Teachers to go on strike to protect their rights
  • Abolish the School-to-Prison pipeline
  • Abolish the STAAR Test. Let teachers be teachers, not testers
  • Cancel student debt
  • No public money for school vouchers
  • Equitable school funding between all schools
  • The Texas Lege & Congress need to do more to fund education
  • Protect and expand resources for special education
